Making headlines: DA dealing with objection around a second deputy to James Selfe, Mantashe calls for united ANC in North West And, De Lille says DA's recall clause amended to get rid of her



DA dealing with objection around a second deputy to James Selfe


The DA's new federal executive may have been elected and announced yesterday, but the addition of a second deputy federal council chairperson position is still up in the air.

An objection was lodged at the party's federal congress in Tshwane yesterday just before election results were announced.

James Selfe - who returned unopposed as federal council chairperson - said the party has asked its legal federal commission chairperson Glynnis Breytenbach to deal with the objection.

Other leaders elected include three deputy federal chairpersons: Ivan Meyer, Mike Waters and Refiloe Ntsekhe; a finance chairperson Dion George; and returning federal council chairperson James Selfe and his deputy Thomas Walters.


Mantashe calls for united ANC in North West

ANC chairperson Gwede Mantashe yesterday again called for unity in the party ahead of the 2019 national and provincial elections.

Speaking at the launch of the "Nomzamo Winnie Madikizela-Mandela volunteers brigade" at Seraleng near Rustenburg in the North West, he said people would not vote for a faction of the ANC, but rather for a united organisation.

The ANC in the North West has shown division, with one faction disrupting ANC events in Rustenburg and Mahikeng.


De Lille says DA's recall clause amended to get rid of her

Cape Town mayor Patricia de Lille says the DA's new "recall clause", which states that the party can remove members in executive positions who lack competence, is a witch hunt against her.

De Lille responded on her verified Twitter account with a series of tweets after the DA's federal congress in Pretoria adopted the constitutional amendment earlier yesterday.

She said it was no secret that there were individuals in the DA who had been trying to get rid of her at any cost for the last few months.
