Last night at a full Council meeting Cllr John Holdich was declared leader of Peterborough City Council.
There were no other nominations and therefore he was elected unopposed without the need for a vote.
It's after former Leader Marco Cereste lost his council seat in elections two weeks ago.
Other positions were also filled, with Cllr Wayne Fitzgerald named deputy leader of the council.
Cllr John peach has been chosen as the new Mayor of Peterborough and Cllr Nazim Khan is the new Deputy Mayor.
