The Council is composed of 16 elected representatives. Local elections are held every four years on a Proportional Representation system. At the last election in May 2005 those elected were from the following political parties: 8 Sinn Féin, 4 Democratic Unionist Party (DUP), 2 Social Democratic and Labour Party (SDLP) and 2 Ulster Unionist Party (UUP). The Chairman and Vice Chairman are elected on an annual basis at the Annual General Meeting in June. The current Chairman is Councillor Kate McEldowney(Sinn Féin) and the Vice Chairman is Cllr Anne Forde (DUP). Both represent the Sperrin Electoral Area. It is believed this is the first instance of two women occupying the two senior posts in a district or borough council in Northern Ireland.
