15 MPs will be mayors, as Le Quotidien reported on 11 October. Even if the DP has lost one seat in the capital, Lydie Polfer will be the mayor of Luxembourg City for a third time.
In Differdange, where the Greens gained a majority, Roberto Traversini was elected mayor for the next 6 years. In Mondorf, as a new council head, Lex Delles (DP) scored his personal best. In Sanem, the LSAP remains the strongest with Georges Engel as mayor. Léon Gloden (CSV) will be the mayor of Grevenmacher and in Bettembourg Laurent Zeimet (CSV) stays head of the local council.
Other MP-mayors include: Claude Haagen (LSAP, Diekirch); Marc Lies (CSV, Hesperange); Michel Wolter (CSV, Käerjeng); Gilles Roth (CSV, Mamer); Octavie Modert (CSV, Stadtbredimus); Marco Schank (CSV; Esch-sur-Sûre); Edy Mertens (DP, Troisvierges); Emile Eicher (CSV, Clervaux) and Félix Eischen (CSV, Kehlen).
Only three MPs lost their mayoral seats: Henri Kox, from the Greens in Remich; Joëlle Elvinger from the DP in Walferdange; and Cécile Hemmen from the LSAP in Weiler-la-Tour.
Correction: A previous version of this article inadvertently omitted 3 MPs from 2 parties from the third paragraph. This was updated on 12 October at 4pm.
