Outgoing Lord Mayor

on the left. These were the original group of three Liberal Councillors on Manchester
City Council from 1979 onwards. From May 2004 there are 38 Liberal Democrat councillors
on Manchester City Council.

In the UK, the post of Lord Mayor is largely ceremonial. The Lord Mayor is elected for a period of one year by other council members on the basis of seniority. At present a few towns and cities including London, Hartlepool and Stoke-on-Trent have powerful executive style mayors, similar to those in the United States.
