Rory Stewart OBE, Independent Candidate for Mayor of London

Rory is running as an independent candidate for Mayor of London. This follows almost ten years as an MP, during which time he served as Secretary of State for International Development, Prisons Minister, Minister for Africa, and Minister for the Environment. Rory resigned from the cabinet in July following the election of Boris Johnson, and subsequently resigned from the Conservative party.

He has been a public servant for 29 years. After a brief period as an infantry officer he joined the UK Diplomatic Service, serving overseas in Jakarta, as British representative to Montenegro in the wake of the Kosovo crisis, and as the coalition Deputy-Governor of two provinces of Southern Iraq following the intervention of 2003. On leave from the Foreign Service he walked for 21 months crossing Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan, India and Nepal, staying in 500 village houses on the journey.

From 2005 to 2008 he was the Chair and Chief Executive of the Turquoise Mountain Foundation based in Kabul, which he built from one to three hundred employees, working to restore a section of the old city, establish a clinic, primary school, and Arts Institute, and bring Afghan crafts to international markets.

He has written four books, presented three BBC television documentaries, and was awarded the Order of the British Empire for his work in Iraq.
