City of Westminster Council leader has announced she will leave her role after she was elected as an MP last night.
Nickie Aiken said she felt "dazed" after a long campaign which saw her win the Cities of London and Westminster constituency.
Straight away, the new MP pledged to help the capital's rough sleepers.
She said: “My main priorities for the constituency will be to try and work with ministers to really tackle the on-going issues of rough sleeping we have in London and to change their lives around.
“And short term lettings have got to be addressed. It’s caused a massive issue and that’s really got to be addressed. It’s caused major problems many many for people in central London.”
She will be tendering her resignation next week as Leader of the Conservative controlled Westminster City Council as she said you can’t do both jobs.
