nesil caliscanNesil Caliscan's election as leader of the Labour Group on Enfield Council is featured on the website T-Vine, whose audience is people of Turkish heritage living in the UK.

The website says she is the first person of Turkish heritage to head a UK council. A lifelong Enfield resident, she joined the Labour Party aged 15. She works for NHS England in the National Health and Inequality Team.

Nesil's formal appointment as Council Leader will take place on 23rd May.

According to the report, an estimated one in five residents of Enfield speaks Turkish. At the elections last week a third of all councillors who were elected - 21 out of 63 - belonged to the Turkishs community.
