In accordance with the Municipal Structures Act 117/1998, Dr Beyers Naudé LM has been classified as a Category B Municipality; a collective executive system combined with a Ward participatory system. A collective executive system limits the exercise of executive authority to the Municipal Council itself and a Ward participatory system allows for matters of local concern to be dealt with by Ward Committees. Dr Beyers Naudé LM (provisionally a Grade 3 Municipality) does not qualify for an Executive Mayor and currently all but two of the 27 Councillors serve in their part-time capacity. Only the Mayor and Speaker have been allocated full-time status. There are 14 Ward Councillors – whose Ward Committees are still to be established – and 13 Proportional Representatives.
