minority council (plural minority councils)

  1. (politics) a civic governing coalition whereby the Mayor's political allies in city council hold a minority of the seats; a form of minority government . As a Mayor may be directly elected, the allied councillors need not hold a plurality of the seats, the opposition alliance on council may contain a majority of the seats on council.
