Christina Kitsos set to become new Mayor of Geneva


Christina Kitsos, who was born to Greek parents in Geneva, Switzerland, is expected to become the city’s new mayor.

Kitsos, who will take office in June, has already made substantial political contributions, beginning her career in the Youth Parliament at the age of 13 and then joined the Socialist Party.

The post of mayor of Geneva (maire de Genève) is rotated annually among the five members of the city’s administration council, which serves as its executive government.

Kitsos’s ascent to the mayorship comes as a recognition of her dedication to public service and commitment to addressing key issues facing the city.
