I have today tendered my resignation as Chief of Staff to the DA Leader with immediate effect. This has not been an easy decision to arrive at, but after much thought, prayer and discussion with friends and family, Siya and I are convinced it is the right decision.

The last 6 years as a DA staff member has been an incredible adventure, making history along the way, but sadly this chapter has come to an end. (2/2)— Graham Charters (@Graham7Charters) February 6, 2020
Mmusi Maimane's former chief of staff, Graham Carters, has joined the list of senior Democratic Alliance (DA) personnel to resign.
Carters' resignation follows that of DA communications manager Mabine Seabe, who left his post last week.
