Background
Background

  • In terms of section 22 of the Local Government: Municipal Demarcation Act, 1998, the Municipal Demarcation Board may determine or re-determine municipal boundaries on its own initiative, on request by the Minister or a MEC for local government, or on request by a municipality with the concurrence of any other municipality affected by the proposed determination or re-determination.

  • In August 2005 the Minister of Provincial and Local Government requested the MDB to re-determine the boundaries of certain municipalities. The Minister’s request was gazetted (Government Gazette No. 27937) for general information on 19 August 2005.

  • As from 2 September 2005 the Minister’s request was published in the media in terms of section 26 of the Demarcation Act, 1998, inviting the public to submit written views and representation to the Board.

  • On 7 and 13 October 2005 the Board met to deal with written views and representations received.


Principles
Principles

  • MDB has no mandate to deal with provincial boundaries.

  • MDB’s mandate is limited to the demarcation of municipal boundaries, and the delimitation of wards.

  • MDB re-determined boundaries within existing legal framework.

  • MDB has the responsibility to take into account all views, representations, and applicable legislation, but ultimately it must perform its functions independently, impartially, and without fear, favour or prejudice.

  • Re-determinations of boundaries if CBMs are provisional, and subject to concurrence of provincial legislatures and authorisation by national legislation.

  • Any changes to municipal boundaries need to be limited, as wards have already been delimited for the elections.

  • Changes to municipal boundaries (may) affect the number of councillors, the number of wards, voting districts and the voters’ roll.

  • Demarcation process need to be finalised as soon as possible to allow Parliament to proceed with the amendment of legislation.

  • Time needs to be allowed for the IEC to comply with their legal requirements including the registration of voters, and the compilation of a national common voters’ roll.

  • No changes can be made after the election date has been proclaimed, as the voters’ roll closes on that date.

  • MDBs re-determination need to be gazetted this week.

  • 30 days will be allowed for objection.
