Magazine denies declaring Kamal 2nd best mayor

November 13, 2008

Karachi The management of US magazine Foreign Policy has clarified that it has not declared city Nazim Karachi, Syed Mustafa Kamal as the worlds second best mayor.
To clarify, although Mr Mustafa Kamal was mentioned in a sidebar called 'Mayors of the Moment' in the article, 'The 2008 Global Cities Index,' this mention had nothing to do with any ranking, Jina Hassan,, Media and Public Relations Coordinator Foreign Policy magazine told Online on Wednesday.
Miss Jina said that Kamal was not chosen as the worlds second best mayor because the purpose of the article was not meant for that. No survey was conducted even in this regard, she maintained.
Rather, we meant to highlight the city executive innovation against enormous odds. While we applaud the mayors (Kamal) efforts, his mention in our magazine was only a small part of a larger article that ranked the worlds most global cities, and Karachi ranks 57, she added.
