The 2021 World Mayor Prize and Commendations will be conferred on mayors who have been showing leadership during the Covid-19 pandemic and who are now aiming to make their cities more resilient economically, structurally, socially and environmentally. In fact: Stronger | Fairer | Greener. The organisers of the World Mayor Project are looking for mayors who have shown exceptional leadership skills but also, and more importantly, acted at all times with compassion towards those most affected by Covid-19. The pandemic has shown how vulnerable even the richest cities are when confronted with a disaster like Covid-19. Forward-looking city leaders will now begin to re-think how their communities can be better protected against future threats, both natural and man-made.

Leila Mustapha, Mayor of Raqqa, Syria, has been shortlisted for the 2021 World Mayor Prize.

You may wish to support her further and comment on her achievements and plans for her city.

Nominations for
Leila Mustapha
Mayor of Raqqa (Syria)


Nominated by Aram X, Armenia:
I think Leila Mustafa is qualified for this title. As an Armenian citizen, I believe that she is doing great things at such a young age. Being both Kurdish and woman is extremely hard in such an environment. She is inspiring for everyone in the Middle East.


Nominated by D. Y., Turkey:
I support Leila Mustafa for the best mayor of 2021. Considering the war situation in Syria, I believe she has done a great job as a woman. I believe this is a huge progressive movement in the Middle East.


Nominated by Eren Y., Turkey:
Leila Mustafa is a woman from Middle East. I think this alone is an enough reason to support her. It gives women in the region strength in their struggle.


Nominated by Huseyin A.:
Because like a flower that blooms in war


Nominated by Serdar Y., Turkey:
I vote her in this election because she's a woman who made radical changes in Raqqa after the defeat of the barbaric isis armies. congratulations to her :)


Nominated by F. A., Turkey:
Leila Mustafa is the person I'm voting for. She is one of the best examples of a good leader and a powerful woman. I think she is being a very good role model for the girls and women in the Middle East and I think that she should be the one to win the voting.
