Helen Zille has been elected the Democratic Alliance new Federal Council chairperson, after 155 delegates voted at the weekend.
The South African Institute for Race Relations has denied the Democratic Alliance leader Mmusi Maimane’s allegation that it is a right-wing institution that has been interfering in the affairs of the party.
Democratic Alliance (DA) leader Mmusi Maimane has put a proposal for an early elective and policy conference at the party’s Federal Council meeting currently underway in Johannesburg.
Democratic Alliance Spokesperson Solly Malatsi says a review panel report has been handed to the party and members will start to deliberate on it shortly.
Beleaguered DA leader, Mmusi Maimane is adamant that he will remain party leader despite internal political pressure.
