Sally Capp Is Melbourne's First Ever Directly Elected Female Mayor

Property Council of Victoria boss Sally Capp has been named as Melbourne's incoming lord mayor.

The Victorian Electoral Commission told AAP on Friday Ms Capp won 53.05 per cent of the votes after distribution in the by-election with Jennifer Yang securing the second-highest number of votes.

The coveted $193,000 job became available after former lord mayor Robert Doyle resigned amid sexual harassment allegations, which he strenuously denies.
