District Judge J.F. Clawson ordered Monday that Killeen set its election for open city council seats for May 12, leaving the city without a council for the next six months.

The order covers the general election for mayor, as well as the three open at-large seats. In addition, a special election to fill the unexpired terms of Districts 1 and 2 will be held. Those positions run through May 2013.

The city requested a special election last week, after the votes from the Nov. 8 recall election were canvassed.

City officials asked for a special election to be held in February.
