Rhys Hutchings of Goldie Lookin Chain has been voted in as a Labour party councillor for Newport, Wales.

Hutchings will represent the St Julians ward in the city. Three recounts had to be staged, but in the end Hutchings came top, polling 981 votes, reports MSN News. After winning the local election vote, Hutchings said:

It's the hardest thing I've had to do since my Duke of Edinburgh Award when I was 15 years old. I'm chuffed to have won and it comes after hard work by my supporters and I've got to thank them for that. I can't wait to help those people that trusted me and voted for me.


Hutchings, who is known in the band as Zardoz, P Xain and Dwain Xain Zedong, added that the rest of Goldie Lookin Chain will be coming to watch him make his debut as councillor.

Comedy rap collective Goldie Lookin Chain released 'Primordial Soup - The Mix Tape 3', earlier this year.
