Dr Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma Local Municipality is a local municipality of South Africa. It was established after the August 2016 local elections by the merging of Ingwe and Kwa Sani local municipalities.[2]

Politics[edit]

The municipal council consists of twenty-nine members elected by mixed-member proportional representation. Fifteen councillors are elected by first-past-the-post voting in fifteen wards, while the remaining fourteen 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 3 August 2016 the African National Congress (ANC) won a majority of twenty-three seats on the council. The following table shows the results of the election.[3][4]
