The Santa Christina Greater Metropolitan Council is the legislative body governing the city of Santa Christina and its environs. Prior to 1948, the council governed only the innermost portions of the city, with the other 'satellite' cities having their own councils, but since then it is the sole local government body in the entire city. The council consists of 35 members, elected from five 'wards' of seven members each. The council is elected under a Single Transferable Vote proportional system. Each party has a leader, and the Council elects a Council President to preside over meetings. The Mayor or Deputy Mayor are empowered to attend Council meetings and to speak, but not to vote. Prior to 2000, the Deputy Mayor was also the council's presiding officer. The Council President is second-in-line to succeed the Mayor in the event of a vacancy.  The current President of the Council is Conservative leader Cr Peter Braintree. No party has a majority on the City Council at present. The Georgeland Alliance holds the balance of power.
