17. The term of office of a member of the council expires at the same time as the member’s term as member of the council of a municipality which was in progress when the member was appointed to the council of the Community.
However, a member of the council, other than a member by virtue of office, may be replaced at any time before the expiry of the member’s term in accordance with the rules that apply to the member’s designation, subject to the requirement that the decision to replace a member be made by a 2/3 majority of the votes cast.
At the end of his or her term of office, a member of the council remains in office until a successor takes office. Where applicable, the member of the council also continues to hold office as a member of the executive committee or of a committee of the Community during that period, unless the member is replaced in that capacity before the end of that period.
