Mayor Boris confirms he will stand for second term

London Mayor Boris Johnson has confirmed he would be seeking re-election for a second term.

Johnson said he wanted to stay on beyond the election date of May 2012 because he had “more to do” improving the capital and overseeing the Olympics.

He told LBC radio's Nick Ferrari show.“It is my intention and indeed I have written to seek the nomination to serve as Mayor for another term,” he told LBC radio's Nick Ferrari show.

“I have got tough challenges on crime, improving the urban environment. I do think it is a good record so far and I am proud to defend it.”
