Fetakgomo/Tubatse Local Municipality is a local municipality of South Africa. It was established after the August 2016 local elections by the merging of Fetakgomo and Greater Tubatse local municipalities.[2]

Politics

The municipal council consists of seventy-seven members elected by mixed-member proportional representation. Thirty-nine councillors are elected by first-past-the-post voting in thirty-nine wards, while the remaining thirty-eight 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 fifty-four seats on the council. The following table shows the results of the election.[3][4]
