Sergei Sobyanin has officially entered a post of the mayor of Moscow.

The inauguration ceremony was held in the concert hall of the «charge». Mayor-elect received the badge of the mayor and took the oath in the Charter capital: «I Swear in exercising the powers of the mayor of Moscow to comply with the Constitution of the Russian Federation, the Federal legislation, the Charter and city laws, honestly and conscientiously perform the duties entrusted to me to serve the prosperity of the city and welfare of its residents.»

After that, according to the Charter, the mayor has come into office.

Elections of the mayor of Moscow passed on September 9. According to the final data, Sobyanin scored 70,17% of the votes, voted 1 582 762 people.

The first time Sobyanin became Moscow mayor in October 2010 after Yuri Luzhkov, who held the post for 18 years, was prematurely dismissed in connection with loss of trust of the President. In June 2013, Sobyanin ahead of schedule resigned to take part in direct election of mayor, and in September won them.
