# COPE councillor Colleen Makhubele was elected as chair of chairs during a disruption-filled City of Johannesburg Council meeting yesterday. This is despite the ANC, EFF, and other minority parties staging a walkout of the council. The parties said they will not be part of a process in which the speaker flouts the rules. The parties refused to field any candidates for chairpersons of oversight committees or chair of chairs. The continued disruptions may see the city unable to pass its budget for 2022/2023. The speaker has postponed the meeting to next week Thursday.
