Main places

The 2001 census divided the municipality into the following main places:


The municipal council consists of twenty-three members elected by mixed-member proportional representation. Twelve councillors are elected by first-past-the-post voting in twelve wards, while the remaining eleven are chosen from party lists so that the total number of party representatives is proportional to the number of votes received. In the election of 3 August 2016, the African National Congress (ANC) lost its majority on the council. Midah Moselane of the Thabazimbi Residents Association subsequently was elected mayor with support from the Democratic Alliance (DA), the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF), and the Freedom Front Plus (FF+).
