The South African municipal landscape will change after the 2016 elections, the municipal demarcation board said.

The South African municipal landscape will change after the 2016 elections, the municipal demarcation board said on Tuesday.

"We have reached the final leg of this cycle and made the final determination of the cases that were before the board," chairman Landiwe Mahlangu told reporters in Pretoria.

"In reaching its final determinations, the board was by law expected, based on objections received, to either vary, confirm or withdraw on its decision on a particular case."

He said the board had published 167 cases and received almost 10,000 objections, most of them from Gauteng.

Among these was an objection to the merger of the Midvaal and Emfuleni local municipalities, and the Sedibeng district municipality, into a single metropolitan municipality.
