Rotherham Council’s cabinet is to resign in the wake of a damning report which found it was “not fit for purpose” after a child abuse scandal.
The National Crime Agency said Louise Casey’s report identified “a number of potentially criminal matters”.
The inquiry found a culture of bullying, sexism, suppression and misplaced “political correctness”.
Communities Secretary Eric Pickles said he planned to give control of the council to five commissioners.
He also plans to impose early elections in 2016.
He said: “In the immediate term, I am minded to appoint commissioners who will provide new leadership taking over the roles of the currently wholly dysfunctional cabinet.
“I am proposing they will therefore initially exercise all the functions currently exercised by the cabinet – that is all the council’s executive functions.”
He said the 2016 elections would give people a chance to “renew the membership of their council and elect those they have confidence in”.
