On 2 May, residents from seven council areas under the mayor's representation will cast their votes.

Established in 2017, the creation of the mayor's post was a prerequisite for the central government to grant more powers and financial resources to the local councils in the region.

The current mayor's role includes serving as a prominent advocate and representative for the area, engaging with the national government to secure additional support.
