The interim mayor of Greater Manchester will be chosen later. Senior officials from the 10 Greater Manchester Councils have been involved in making the decision. The two candidates standing are Lord Peter Smith, leader of Wigan Council and Greater Manchester Police and Crime Commissioner, Tony Lloyd.
The interim mayor will not have executive powers but will provide strategic leadership in the transitional period until May 2017 when a directly elected mayor will be voted in by the Greater Manchester public.
