DA leader Mmusi Maimane held a press briefing on Tuesday, describing Monday's motion as 'chaotic'.

He says the United Democratic Movement (UDM), African National Congress (ANC) and Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) have formed a coalition to undermine the will of the electorate and to 'make a mockery' of local government.

Eyewitness News reporter Kevin Brandt was at the presser.

DA leader Mmusi Maimane has emphasized that if the newly-formed coalition before the EFF, UDM and ANC stays, Nelson Mandela Bay residents will be the ones to suffer.

Mr Maimane also stated that communication will continue and that whenever there are any problems, that will be addressed. He says that they feel very strongly that they have a case to present in court.
