MMC of Finance at City Of Joburg, Geoffrey Makhubo says the DA's instability is the reason why they are calling for fresh elections. He says the unprincipled coalition is a concern, 'where people agree today and don't agree tomorrow.'

We also feel that there are a lot of people who are employed who are underqualified and incompetent in all three metros and that is not good for service delivery.— Geoffrey Makhubo, MMC of Finance at City Of Joburg
Makhubo has denied accusations by the DA that this call for fresh elections is an indication of the ANC playing politics.
