  Greater London Authority (GLA)
by kris-t

The Greater London Authority (GLA) administers the 1579 sq. km. (610 sq. miles) of Greater London, covering the 32 London boroughs and the City of London. The authority consists of an elected Mayor and 25-member Assembly. The present Mayor is Ken Livingstone, formerly (1981-1986) leader of the Greater London Council (GLC).

The GLA was created to improve the coordination of the various London boroughs, and the Mayor of London's role is to give London a single person to represent it.
