DA notes De Lille’s intention to approach the Courts
8 May 2018
The DA notes Ms Patricia De Lille’s comments that she will be approaching the Courts on Friday, 11 May 2018, to challenge the constitutionality of Section 18.104.22.168 of the DA’s Constitution.
The Party is yet to receive the papers in this regard. Once we have received them, we will study them carefully and provide feedback to the public and the media.
Ms De Lille voluntarily took up DA membership, where she served on the Federal Executive of the Party for many years and viewed the processes, procedures and application of the Party’s constitution up close.
It is therefore disingenuous that she finds issue with the application thereof, now that it has been applied to her.
The Acting Mayor, Ian Nielson, will now continue the work of Mayor of the City of Cape Town with the explicit mandate to ensure that the citizens of Cape Town are placed front and centre and that services are delivered and good governance is restored.
