In France, for the first time in history a woman-transgender became mayor of the city. It is reported by local newspaper La Voix du Nord.
55-year-old Marie Ko became the mayor of the town Tiya-Le-Marshland in the North of the country, located not far from Lille.
Immediately after the election To held the first meeting with the participation of his team at city hall, which promised to “send energy” to improve conditions of local residents.
In the town Tiya-Le-Martien listed 455 voters.
Radio RFI notes that Ko is the mother of three children. It will combine the functions of mayor with the leadership of the company in the field of it consulting.
