Executive Mayor hosts Political IGR


The Executive Mayor hosted the 4th quarterly Political Intergovernmental Relations Forum (IGR) in accordance with the Intergovernmental Relations Framework Act no 13 of 2003

The IGR conventionally is defined as ‘important interactions between government of all types of spheres and levels. Intergovernmental Relations are defined as an interacting network of institutions at national, provincial and local levels, created and refined to enable the various parts of government to cohere in a manner more or less appropriate to our institutional arrangements. It is an evolving system of institutional co-operation that seeks to address the relations of equality and interdependence as defined by the Constitution.


In terms of section 24 of the IGRF Act, it regulates for the establishment of District intergovernmental forums, with the following objectives in mind:

-       To promote and facilitate intergovernmental relations between the District Municipality and the Local Municipalities in the District

-       To facilitate IGR between Local, Provincial and National spheres of government

The IGRF Act was passed to improve coherence, coordination and integration across spheres and organs of government to ultimately achieve the developmental goals; provision of service delivery, alleviation of poverty and development of communities.
