Sydney wants more Clover

CLOVER Moore's 24-year career as a state MP is over after the controversial politician secured a third term as Sydney's Lord Mayor on Saturday.

Under new legislation passed by the O'Farrell government, Ms Moore will not be able to hold the dual roles of MP and Lord Mayor - a feat she has managed since 2004.

Ms Moore chose local government over state politics, vowing to continue a "progressive agenda".

She trounced her rivals for the top job, securing more than 51% of the vote, well clear of the Liberal Party's Edward Mandla on 15%.

Angela Vithoulkas, who had been tipped to challenge Ms Moore, finished with just 9% of the vote.

In Botany Bay Ben Keneally, the husband of former NSW premier Kristina Keneally, won the top job.

Across the state there was a dramatic swing against the Greens as more than four million voters went to the polls on Saturday.
