The Mayor of Pune is the first citizen of the Indian city of Pune. The person is the chief of the Pune Municipal Corporation, but his/her role is largely ceremonial as the real powers are vested in the Municipal Commissioner. He/She is elected from within the ranks of the council in a quinquennial election. The elections are conducted in all 76 regions in the city to elect corporators. The party that wins the maximum number of seats holds an internal voting to decide the mayor. Vaishali Bankar (belonging to the Nationalist Congress Party) is the current Mayor of Pune.
