Councillors unanimously voted for Mohammed Asaduzzaman, who was elected to Brighton & Hove City Council last May.

Council leader Bella Sankey said Mr Asaduzzaman was “warm, kind, funny and ambitious for our city”.

“Brighton and Hove can look forward to a mayor whose compassion has already left a mark on the city’s social, cultural, economic and political landscape,” she said.

Muslim residents welcome new mayor

Mr Asaduzzaman, who has lived in the city for 30 years, previously worked with the state minister for irrigation and water development in Bangladesh, and has a degree in political science.

During the Covid-19 pandemic, he provided 500 free meals to essential service providers.

He also pushed for vaccinations for those with uncertain immigration status, acted as an interpreter for those in legal need and gave support to victims of crime.

Ms Sankey added: “With three decades of residency in Brighton, he has woven himself into the very fabric of the community.

“His journey from Bangladesh to Brighton exemplifies a life dedicated to public service and community betterment.”

The weapons free silent intafada has begun. Make a billion babies, put up candidates, start winning elections and postings, take over the world, impose shairia rule, scream Islamaphobia at anyone getting in the way. But, good news is, whatever they do, G-d has our backs.
