Former Gauteng South DA chairperson Khume Ramulifho is challenging the appointment of Democratic Alliance MP Natasha Mazzone as second deputy federal chairperson.
Ramulifho has obtained a legal opinion that says Mazzone's appointment is invalid and has lodged a complaint with the DA.
He says the decision to vote for the second deputy chairperson was made before the party constitution was amended.
Voting took place between six and nine on Sunday morning before the constitution was amended to include the second deputy position. Somewhere around ten, I stood and raised this matter with the congress and the congress unanimously agreed that we will not be filling the second deputy position.— Khume Ramulifho, Former Gauteng South DA chairperson
Even at the end of congress the position of second deputy was not announced because we took the resolution beforehand. I just saw through social media that the second position has been filled.— Khume Ramulifho, Former Gauteng South DA chairperson
I got the legal opinion and then sent it to federal executive members.— Khume Ramulifho, Former Gauteng South DA chairperson
