Following a rigorous and intensive election process on October 26 and November 2, 2022, the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality has finally concluded its Ward Committee elections, which saw thousands of registered voters come out to cast their ballots for the 1450 candidates that contested.


The election process was followed by the receipt and processing of 23 appeals from different wards across the city. Subsequent to the conclusion of the appeal process, the Ward Election Task Team (WETT) met on November 16, 2022, to go through the Ward Committee Elections report, which was subsequently approved.

 

Ward Councillors have now been given the names of their elected Ward Committee members. On Monday, appointment letters were issued to the elected members.


A ceremony to inaugurate the newly elected members of the Ward Committee will be held on the 30th of November 2022. After the inauguration, the South African Local Government Association (SALGA) will organize an induction training session to help equip ward committees with the skills they need to effectively carry out their tasks.

 

After all these processes have been concluded, the elected members of the Ward Committee will be expected to hit the ground running in fulfilling their duty to support the coordination and implementation of service delivery in their wards.

"The conclusion of this process has a direct link to high expectations of accelerated and improved service delivery. We expect nothing less from the newly elected members,” said Mayoral Committee Member of Constituency Services, Cllr Rano Kayser.  

"Working closely with their Ward Councillors, we expect them to be men and women who will go the extra mile to make sure that the conditions of their communities are improved," he said.
