Note that dates overlap. This is because there were four mayors. First was titled president and had highest power, the rest were named second mayor, third mayor and fourth mayor. After a year the president gave power to the second mayor, and became the fourth mayor. The process repeated itself, interrupted by deaths and elections of new mayors.
