The municipal council consists of eight members elected by mixed-member proportional representation. Four councillors are elected by first-past-the-post voting in four wards, while the remaining four are chosen from party lists so that the total number of party representatives is proportional to the number of votes received. In the election of 18 May 2011 no party obtained a majority of seats on the council. With the two sides—the African National Congress and the Democratic Alliance–Congress of the People coalition—having an equal amount of seats the impasse was solved by a coin toss, which was won by the African National Congress.
|African National Congress||3,325||3,379||6,704||53.6||4||0||4|
|Congress of the People||854||865||1,719||13.7||0||1||1|
