A Tale of Two Mayors: Who is the Mayor of London?
If I am not mistaken, then I think that the Mayor of London is ought to be Boris Johnson nowadays. Without checking any online news or information sources, looking up any official websites – I can recall that it should be Boris Johnson.
I clearly remember when he was elected – people were talking whether he could oust Ken Livingstone from the office, what an extravagant person would rule London, and how he was in fact of a Turkish descent – his great-grandfather or so was a top Ottoman official brought down from a train and lynched by an angry mob for his cooperation with the British.
Well, it seems that I am mistaken! Because, according to Azeri media, the Mayor of London Ian Luder is currently visiting Baku and holding meetings with government officials:
The Public Television of Azerbaijan reports that "Mayor of London is in Baku with official visit" – moreover, "the Mayor of London is accompanying representatives of fourteen leading companies in different fields of financial sector". Here is private Khazar TV reporting the news – "Mayor of London in Baku" and "The President has received the Mayor of London". And of course, Azeri Press Agency:
“The United Kingdom and Azerbaijan value each other as a long-term partner”, said Mayor of London Alderman Ian Luder at the press conference on the results of his visit to Baku, APA reports.
