Dhe Green Belit Onay becomes Lord Mayor of Hannover. In the ballot, the member of parliament prevailed on Sunday with 52.9 percent against the CDU candidate Eckhard Scholz, who came to 47.1 percent of the vote.

Hannover is thus the fourth big city after Freiburg, Darmstadt and Stuttgart, in which a Gruner moves up to become Lord Mayor.

At the same time, for the first time in more than 70 years, the SPD is no longer the mayor of Lower Saxony's capital.

The Turkish-born Onay is nationwide the first Lord Mayor with a migration background in a state capital.
