Mayors of world's capital cities
(
A to Z - country by country)

December 2019: The table lists the mayors of capital cities (country by country). Of the 134 cities examined, the research found 98 national capitals with elected mayors – either directly elected (79) or chosen by the city council (19). Some 35 mayors were appointed, mostly by their respective national governments. Only 24 capital cities (17.9%) have female mayors, although in Tokyo, Paris, Rome, Madrid, Oslo and Havana women are in charge of municipal government. The longest serving mayors are Yaoundé’s  Emil Andze (1996), San José’s Johnny Monge (1998) and Sydney’s Clover Moore (2004).
