Seoul City will be run by an acting mayor for the next nine months after Mayor Park Won-soon was found dead on Friday. 

Park, who was elected for a third term in 2018, had almost two more years left in office until June 30, 2022. 

By law, Seo Jeong-hyup, first vice mayor for administrative affairs, will serve as acting mayor until the by-election slated for April 7, 2021. 

Seo, an experienced administrator, is expected to manage the city without difficulties, but Park's major real estate policies could face setbacks.
