The elected councillors will take the oath of their offices on Tuesday at the Municipal House of Delhi, following which the national capital will get a mayor as a whole after a gap of 10 years.
Also, this time it will be a woman mayor and she will step in the shoes of freedom fighter Aruna Asaf Ali who was chosen to the top post in 1958 when the Municipal Corporation of Delhi came into being.
The position of mayor wielded a lot of influence and carried huge prestige till 2012 when the corporation was split into three separate civic bodies, North, South and East municipal corporations, with each having its own mayor.
