City council reelects Qalibaf as Tehran mayor

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Members of City Council of Tehran reelected Mohammad Baqer Qalibaf as mayor of Iran’s capital city on Sunday morning.

Qalibaf kept his position as Tehran mayor after winning 16 votes in this morning’s election, defeating his rival Mohsen Hashemi who could garner only 14.

A run-off voting was held after an earlier round saw the two nominees gain an equal number of votes, each 15.

Qalibaf has served in the post for 8 years, and his today’s lead retains him in Tehran municipality for another 4-year term.
