Motti Malka (Hebrew: מוטי מלכה‎) is the mayor of the southern Israeli city of Kiryat Malakhi.[1] Malka is a member of the Mayors For Peace Network, an organization that aims to promote peace at a local, and civil society level across the world.[2]

Malka was first elected in the 2003 municipal elections, beating the Likud incumbent by a comfortable margin.[3] In the 2007 elections, he was re-elected on the Kadima list with 84% of the vote.[4]

On 10 May 2012, Ynet news reported that Malka is a suspect in a rape in an apartment for a demonstration project.[5][6] Malka denied the allegations[7] and stated that sexual relations were held "consensually".[7]
