'It's a first-class dilemma for the DA, and a sweet victory for the mayor'
The DA is faced with a serious crisis following their failed motion of no confidence against Patricia De Lille, says public leadership expert Prof Erwin Schwella.
The Cape Town mayor narrowly survived a motion of no confidence against her during a city council vote on Thursday.
Prof Schwella says it's possible that the DA may resort to withdrawing De Lille's membership through the party's disciplinary process.
It was a very close margin and should be very stressing for the DA.Erwin Schwella, Professor of Public Leadership at Stellenbosch University
