The Labour Party is the largest on Brighton and Hove City Council, winning 23 of the 54 seats in the local elections.
The Conservatives are the next largest party, with 20 seats, and the Greens have 11.
The voters spoke on Thursday (7 May) and today (Saturday 9 May), after a count lasting almost ten hours, their voice was heard.
Most of the Labour gains were at the expense of the Greens in wards such as Queen’s Park, Preston Park and Goldsmid.
Labour leader Councillor Warren Morgan said that the coming four years would be an immense challenge with more spending cuts promised by the incoming Conservative government at Westminster.
He promised to review the plans to remodel the road around the Old Steine and tackle transport, jobs and housing.
