An Assembly Member holds the Mayor and Mayoral advisers to account by publicly examining policies and programmes through committee meetings, plenary sessions, site visits and investigations.
The Mayor must also consult Assembly Members before producing statutory strategies and the multi-billion pound budget for the GLA Group. The Assembly can reject the Mayor’s strategies and amend the draft budget if a majority of two-thirds agree to do so. See here to find out more.
