The Department of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs called for comment on the Draft Code of Conduct for Councillors Regulations.

Your opportunity to amend or add to the draft Code of Conduct – a document that regulates elected councillors’ activities, ethics and responsibilities.

    • Councillors are elected to represent local communities on municipal councils, to ensure that municipalities have structured mechanisms of accountability to local communities, and to meet the priority needs of communities by providing services equitably, effectively and sustainably within the means of the municipality.
    • In fulfilling this role, councillors must be accountable to local communities and report back at least quarterly to constituencies on council matters, including the performance of the municipality in terms of established indicators.
    • In order to ensure that councillors fulfil their obligations to their communities, and support the achievement by a municipality of its objectives, the draft Code of Conduct is established.

Have your say – shape the Code of Conduct. [CLOSED]
