In March 2018, the Minister for Local Government initiated the Inquiry Into the City of Perth under Section 8.19 of the Local Government Act 1995. The Council was suspended and Commissioners were appointed by the Minister to fulfill the role of the Council. 

The City of Perth Council will remain suspended while the Inquiry is in place and as such there will be no local government elections for the City of Perth in October 2019.

Further information about the Inquiry is available at Inquiry into the City of Perth website.
