“The only motive that can keep politics pure is the motive of doing good for one’s country and its people”. Henry Ford.
The paradigm shift in political thoughts and actions around the world in most recent years, has resonate the idea that nations should govern itself, free from external interference, that defies super-globalisation and its current burning issues such as; climate change, disarmament, genetic engineering, artificial intelligence, terrorism, health pandemic, national security, identity and sovereignty, which requires the attention of both domestic and national politics.
The LPS team are a trusted and experienced individuals with deep passion and interest in national and transnational issues of democratic governance and prospective political leadership.
We would be looking at the narrow and broad concepts of transitional political leadership shift, in the context of transitional leaders, the effect political inclusion on leadership actions in critical political decision-making in governance.
The LPS would be convening annual summit and awards in London to boost the further discuss and debates on the role and place of politics in modern democratic order as nation states continue to evolve.
The London Political Summit and Awards, is a socio-political platform that began in 2016, with the support of key political leaders of thought and academia. Over the
years, we have seen great contribution especially within the past summits. This has evolved to the establishment of the Annual Uhuru/Railia African Peace Accord Awards, in honour of the two great sons of African politics, President Uhuru Kenyatta of Kenya, and his brother, Rt. Hon. Railia Odinga the former Prime Minister of Kenya, whose peace accord initiative in 2018, brought about democratic peace in Kenya politics.
The main advocacy of the London Political Summit is to propagate and advance the need for political order, democratic peace and good governance among developing countries, through dialogue and cooperation.
Having held the previous summit in 2016, 2017, and 2018 at the London Metropolitan University, Holloway Road in London, our Founding Academic partners. In the year 2018, we had the privilege of the Worshipful Mayor, Clir. Dave Poyser, as the Special Guest of Honour, we have also enjoyed a very strong support from Clir. Rakhia Ismail, the immediate past Mayor of Islington, she has been supporting the summit ever since it inception in 2016.

We are indeed grateful to Clir. Rakhia Ismail again for the return of the summit to the Borough of Islington in 2021. A warm appreciation to The Worshipful Mayor of Islington, Clir.
