Regional Councillors

The terms of office of Ricky Opperman-Knipe (Northern), Donice Perkins (Eastern Cape), and Ryno Venter (Western Cape) expire at the AGM, and elections must therefore be held in these regions to elect new regional committees. The elections take place at an election meeting, which can be held on the same date as and immediately following after a regional meeting (par 6.2 of the Regulations for Regional Committees (the regulations). The person elected as regional chairperson at such election meeting joins council as a regional councillor. Under the provisions of the regulations, nominations for members to serve on these regional committees will only be accepted at the relevant meeting. Invitations to these election meetings, as well as the formal notices as required by the regulations, will be dispatched at a later date.
