Mayor of Doncaster election 2002

Transitional Arrangements

6 The first mayoral elections must take place on the first Thursday in May or the third Thursday in October, whichever occurs first after the end of three months beginning with the date on which regulations under section 44 come into force.

7 Accordingly the first term of office for the elected mayor will not be allowed to be less than two years and could be as much as five years and six months.

8 The elected mayor comes into office on the fourth day after she or he is elected and holds office until her or his successor comes into office. Special provision can be made for alternative arrangements for hand over.
