The council will continue to operate until April 1st, when it will be replaced by the new 40 member Derry City and Strabane Council, for which elections were held last month.

Cllr. Stephenson, a niece of the former SDLP leader and Foyle MP John Hume did not secure election to the new council, which will operate on a shadow basis alongside the present administration for the next 10 months.
