KwaZulu-Natal to have most councillors

2010-10-26 17:07

Durban - KwaZulu-Natal will have the highest number of councillors in the country after the 2011 local government elections, MEC Nomusa Dube said on Tuesday.

“The promulgation of the new wards has significant ramifications for the province. This has seen the number of wards increase from 771 in 2006 to 828 in 2011,” Dube told reporters in Durban.

She said 1 763 proportional representation and ward seats would be contested in 51 local and metropolitan municipalities.

“This also means that 131 council seats would be available to service 10 district municipalities across the province.”

“This development makes KwaZulu-Natal to be the province with the highest number of councillors in the country.”

The new development would come into effect after next year's local government elections.
