Judgment reserved in De Lille's case

The Western Cape High Court has heard arguments in Patricia De Lille's case on Friday.

De Lille is challenging the Democratic Alliance's decision to revoke her membership.

De Lille’s lawyers argued whether a 702/CapeTalk radio interview she gave on The Eusebius Mckaiser Show in April can be used as the basis to have her removed.

Speaking to John Maytham, EWN Reporter Monique Mortlock said the judge reserved judgment in the first part of De Lille's application which deals with whether she should be a DA member again and in turn mayor and councillor while that full bench hearing in sitting, which is happening in two weeks time.

He hasn't yet ruled on that but he did order that the IEC cancels the vacant position of councillor, which means that the acting mayor can't do anything. And that leaves the City of Cape Town in terms of governance in limbo
