John Steenhuisen considering running for DA top job
Former Democratic Alliance chief whip John Steenhuisen says him stepping down as chief whip is a matter of technicality.
He explains that Mmusi Maimane's resignation from the party and Parliament meant he had to vacate his position.
Steenhuisen says it is the parliamentary leader who appoints the chief whip.
Speaking to Eusebius McKaiser, Steenhuisen says he has been approached to run for party leader.
I think it is always better to let the bodies cool before making such decisions. I will certainly be giving it a consideration, I have been approached by a number of people.John Steenhuisen, Member - Democratic Alliance
He adds that to blame the report of the review panel on why the DA performed poorly in the 2019 general elections for the resignation of senior party officials is unfair.
We tried yesterday to convince Maimane and Trollip to remain in their positions until the early congress.John Steenhuisen, Member - Democratic Alliance
Steenhuisen says Zille won the FedEx chairperson role fair and square.
I did vote for Helen Zille I have always been open and upfront that I thought on paper she was the best person for that job given what the job is.John Steenhuisen, Member - Democratic Alliance
