Cape Town - Following the ruling in the Western Cape High Court on Wednesday that the process the party used to axe Cape Town Mayor Patricia De Lille was unlawful, both DA federal council deputy chair, Natasha Mazzone, and De Lille spoke to the media and shared their views on the matter.
De Lille said that she was pleased with the ruling, that it boded well for public representatives in future. She also stated that she looked forward to getting back to work for the poor and vulnerable people of Cape Town.
Mazzone said that the Democratic Alliance are considering an appeal of the judgement.
“We believe that there are certain issues that the court did not look at. There are serious reports that have not been considered. There was a greater focus on our internal issues and the case, and we don’t agree with that,” Mazzone said.
In a statement issued after Wednesday's ruling, Mazzone added:
"It is noteworthy that the court only dealt with technical and procedural matters and did not express itself on the substantive merits of the matter. We will study the judgment and consider further legal options including the possibility of an appeal."
