This follows amendments to the party’s constitution made at the DA’s Congress last weekend.
The DA’s deputy caucus leader in Cape Town, JP Smith, says they are armed with the newly instituted “recall clause” for a possible vote for a motion of no confidence in De Lille.
The recall clause allows the party to remove its leaders in government.
Smith says most DA councillors want De Lille out.
“Many of the councillors have expressed extreme discomfort and dissatisfaction with the on-going attacks by the Mayor on the party, on the caucus members, and on the leadership of the party. The prominent aspect of dissatisfaction by many of the caucus members is the attempt to racialise the attack, to suggest that there is a group of white men who cannot accept the leadership of a strong coloured female.”
