The mayor said parties that did not get MMC positions will be accommodated within the 17 chairperson positions.

Johannesburg mayor Mpho Phalatse announced her mayoral committee. It is a coalition government and took a bit longer to put together.

Four of those positions have gone to the DA: finance, group corporate and shared services, development planning as well as environment and infrastructure services, while Action SA got transport and economic development and public safety. Former police chief David Tembe is now the MMC for public safety.

Mayor Phalatse says they understood that there is pressure but also felt it was important for them as a minority coalition government to spend more time trying to work towards a majority coalition government to stabilise governance in the city. She announce today that they have managed to reach that position.

She said the parties that did not get MMC positions will be accommodated within the 17 chairperson positions.
