Cape Town - Former Cape Town mayor Patricia de Lille on Sunday confirmed she will lead her newly established GOOD party until at least after the 2019 general election.
"On Friday 18 January 2019, and acting in terms of the constitution of GOOD, I convened and constituted our interim national leadership committee (NLC). The Interim NLC will act as the movement’s decision-making body until after the 2019 elections when we will convene a congress and elect the movement’s leadership," she said in a statement.
The NLC’s most important task and focus was to lead the party to success in the elections. The NLC consisted of 36 members with the power to co-opt additional members if and when required. The NLC was fully representative of all nine provinces with at least three delegates from each province. The next task was to establish interim provincial coordinating committees in each province.
"In terms of our constitution we have allocated specific leadership roles and functions to members of the interim NLC," De Lille said.
