With more than 16 years' experience working as a human right solicitor, Cllr Noor is now hoping to gain enough support among fellow Labour members in the constituency to be named its next prospective MP when a general election is called.
He said: "When the opportunity to serve my community as a local Labour councillor came up last year, I was ecstatic about the chance to bring positive change in the community.
"I now have an opportunity to serve on a bigger platform as the Member of Parliament for Ilford South."
