Mayor changes every year in Delhi-Who will become mayor?
Usually, any chief minister or prime minister is elected for 5 years. This does not happen in the Municipal Corporation of Delhi. Five mayors are formed in the municipal corporation in five years and every year in the month of april, the election of the mayor has to be held. Under this, the tenure of Shelly Oberoi will end and delhi will have to elect its new mayor. This process can be started soon.
According to the delhi Municipal Corporation Act, every time the proceedings of the MCD house begin on april 1, the Mayor, Deputy Mayor and a Standing Committee consisting of 6 members are elected. However, due to past incidents, there will be no standing committee election this time. The work of conducting the election of the next mayor in delhi is done by the current mayor as he is the presiding officer. He does the date of the election which is sent to the delhi government and then to the Lieutenant Governor. After approval, a notification is issued.
Who will become mayor?
Quoting sources, AAP will once again field Shelly Oberoi in the election. In such a situation who will be the presiding officer is the question. According to the rules, if the mayor himself contests the election, he cannot act as the presiding officer. Now the Lieutenant governor will decide who will be the presiding officer. The first year's post for the Mayor of MCD is reserved for women and for the second year it is reserved for the general category.
