ACDP RESPONSE TO MAYOR DE LILLE’s ANNOUNCEMENT:
(Some of what I said)
“The ACDP’s national elections manager and former Cape Town deputy mayor Grant Haskin said the pending announcement had been delayed because De Lille was struggling to satisfy various divisions in her caucus.
“People within the party, with political views in contrast to the mayor have seen themselves marginalised within the party. This has been observed in various sub-councils, where, as long as you toe the line, you are safe or in line for a promotion.
“The ultimate end game is aimed towards the next national elections and ultimately the seat of premier. There is real uncertainty within our DA colleagues. They are nervous as the mayor is holding her cards close to her chest.”
