Christchurch's mayor has confirmed she will be seeking a second term.

Lianne Dalziel said she was forced to admit she was running again, after she was asked directly by an elderly resident at today's Anzac service.

She confirmed several weeks ago she was leaning towards running again, but was wary about the emotional toll another term would take on her.

Nobody else has yet put up their hand to contest the mayoralty.
