DA FedEx: We will not stand in caucus's way if they want to table a new motion
The DA's Cape Town City caucus has confirmed that it will be seeking permission from the Federal Executive to table a fresh motion of no confidence against Cape Town Mayor Patricia de Lille.
DA Spokesperson, Refilwe Ntsekhe says the recall clause that was adopted at the party's federal conference allows for democracy, and if caucus has a new motion of no confidence coupled with new information, then they are certainly allowed to table it.
Following a two-thirds majority vote in favour of the motion, deputy caucus leader JP Smith says that two-thirds of the DA’s Councillors in the City don’t believe that De Lille should continue to lead them.
As a party, we cant dictate or interfere with the workings of the caucus in that metro. If they choose to table a new motion of no confidence against the mayor, the party can't say no, you can't do it, because you've had too many things against her... then we are going against out gown values as a political party.Refilwe Ntsekhe, DA Spokesperson
If De Lille is to be removed in this new motion of no confidence, Ntsekhe says the DA will have no problem in continuing to work with her.
If she is removed as the mayor she would remain an ordinary member of the Council and a member of the Democratic Alliance... Actually, that would be fine I don't see what the problem would be if she is indeed removed.Refilwe Ntsekhe, DA Spokesperson
