JOHANNESBURG – Following nomination processes for the new Democratic Alliance (DA) leadership in preparation of 2019 national elections which took place last week, DA leader Mmusi Maimane is expected to face re-election as the party leader during the party elective congress in April.
It is understood that the party will hold its elective congress during the first week of April in Tshwane.
According to reports, Maimane has confirmed that he will stand for re-election because he believes the party has achieved many successes under his leadership.
The awaited DA leadership will face the task of taking the party through to the 2019 elections.
It is expected that Maimane will also be part of that leaderhip as he belives the DA has achieved a lot under his leadership; “We govern in more cities and we’ve been able to advance changes in those cities, I wanted to set up a policy unit and that work is nearly done,” said Maimane.
The party is also expected to discuss policy changes and that may include suggestions for the party to have a deputy leader position.
Maimane has already indicated his opposition to that.
