Would Mayors be elected for four years, when council elections take place?

Would political parties nominate candidates and could others also seek election? If the Mayor was from the same party in control of the council, wouldn't that be almost the same as the current situation? If the Mayor was not from the party in control and had different views, wouldn't they be out-voted by councillors? If the Mayor was given the power to make decisions that the majority of councillors opposed, wouldn't that lead to major conflict and accusations that the council wasn't being democratic?

Our interest is only in triggering an election for a democratically elected mayor. Once this happens, democracy has been implemented and our interest ceases.
