Office of the Executive Mayor Print E-mail
jmpd Park jhbciviccentre reavaya

The mayor is assisted by a mayoral committee made up of 10 councillors. The mayoral committee is responsible for individual portfolios such as community development, housing or finance, and reports directly to the mayor.

The executive work of the council is co-ordinated by the executive mayor, who is elected by the council to provide a strategic  direction for the municipality.

The executive mayor is at the centre of the system of governance, with executive powers to manage the City.

This means that he or she has an overarching strategic and political responsibility.

The executive mayor is also Johannesburg's first citizen and represents the City at ceremonial functions.

The Mayoral committee

The mayoral committee functions like a local cabinet, with individual members having responsibility for different aspects of municipal government.

In the previous system of government, powers could only be exercised by committee and could not be delegated to committee members.

Mayoral sub-committees have been established to facilitate working relationships between the political leadership of the mayoral committee and the senior management of the City manager's team.

Each member of the mayoral committee chairs a portfolio committee, made up of councillors drawn from all political parties.
