All 25 local councils in the Western Cape including the City of Cape Town have been formally constituted with elected representatives in each council duly elected.
The Minister of Local Government, Environmental Affairs and Development Planning, Anton Bredell, has congratulated the various councils in the successful appointments.
“I want to say good luck and all the very best for the next five years. My door is open to every mayor and elected official and my department is always ready to provide any support that councils may need. I hope we can all work together and in service of all our communities.”
The Western Cape also has 5 district councils, Cape Winelands, Overberg, Garden Route, Central Karoo and West Coast. These five districts make up the final five of the 30 councils in the province.
“These five district councils will now hold their first council meetings and elect their representatives. I want to wish them the best of luck in finalising the processes before we can all get on with delivering services to our communities.”
