Leanne Williams, Deputy President of Patriotic Alliance has been offered position of deputy mayor.

One of the smaller political parties, the Patriotic Alliance (PA) has said that it will vote to keep Athol Trollip as Nelson Mandela Bay mayor.

This comes after the EFF threatened to remove Trollip as mayor in order to punish the DA for not voting for land expropriation without compensation.

Leanne Williams, deputy president of the PA, says that it is voting to keep Trollip on principle. She also disclosed that she has been offered the position of deputy mayor of Nelson Mandela Bay.

This resulted in a heated back and forth exchange with 702 host Stephen Grootes, where she insisted that the PA's vote is based on principle, not politics.
