In 2009, following a round of elections for the local councils in the capital, two relatively small and geographically close councils were united into one large council – and the Darom (South) Local Council and Community Center was born.

Apparently, this was a birth under a bad sign, since, from about a few months after the election, nothing could be described as less harmonious than this new council.
