Tshwane councillors have, for the third time, failed to elect a mayor for the capital city.
A special council sitting on Wednesday did not see the election of a mayor after councillors bickered about the legality of the presence of one Congress of the People (Cope) councillor.
Tshwane council Speaker Mncedi Ndzwanana adjourned proceedings saying he was seeking legal advice on the presence of Cope member Thabang Sefanyetso.
He was last week accused of having two identity numbers.
The Democratic Alliance and ActionSA coalition have accused the African National Congress (ANC) and the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) of using concerns about the Cope member to delay the election of a new mayor because the numbers did not support an ANC/EFF alliance.
