First councillor Christiane Thommes will take over.

Marco Assa, mayor of the municipality of Wahl, announced on Facebook that he will be resigning from his post in the coming days. He cited health reasons as the the determining factor in his descision.

He writes that he had hoped that his health would improve after National Day, but this has unfortunately not been the case.

After having already filled in for Assa on a temporary basis, first councillor Thommes will now be taking on the position of mayor full time.
