African Christian Democratic Party says it does not believe the reasons given by De Lille for stepping down.
De Lille said she had decided to resign as the DA leader in the Western Cape so that she could focus on local government issues in the Western Cape.
“We do not believe that is her real reason for her resignation as the provincial leader. We believe that the DA has uncovered her desire to, and her ambition to be the Premier of the Western Cape in 2019… and she has been using her ex-ID colleagues to make it in the political leadership, so that she can get to the administration of the city with the intent to become the Premier in 2019 – and that is now sorted, and that is probably the victory for the DA component… that we believe is the reality of the situation,” says ACDP Caucus leader in the City of Cape Town, Grant Haskin.
