We must always remember we are not inside Parliament representing ourselves and always find a way to get feedback and playing my role to get our country out of a very painful situation.— Patricia de Lille, Leader - Good Party
De Lille speaks about the importance of girls and women.
When asked about the resignation of national chairperson Nthabiseng Lephoko resigned who it is reported was upset because De Lille chose Shaun August as Member of Parliament over her, she responds.
You can't just give seats away to just anyone. We followed a due process - she was the interim chairperson - of which she was part. She was number 4 on the national list. You can't change the list once you have submitted it to the IEC.— Patricia de Lille, Leader - Good Party
She never had problems with the list until she did not get a position...but we wished each other well and we parted amicably.— Patricia de Lille, Leader - Good Party
De Lille says the voters have spoken and she is sure the president got the message.
We can't just blame one another. We need to run government around.— Patricia de Lille, Leader - Good Party
We will be a strong opposition but also offer solutions.— Patricia de Lille, Leader - Good Party
