Port Elizabeth - The motion of no confidence against Nelson Mandela Bay Mayor Athol Trollip has been withdrawn.
The special meeting meant to hear the motion was adjourned and the matter withdrawn as two ANC councillors were not at the council sitting.
One of the two ANC councillors is Andile Lungisa who was on Wednesday sentenced to two years direct imprisonment for the attack on DA councillor Rano Kavser during a council meeting in 2016.
Lungisa is being held in prison while his lawyers appeal the sentence at the Eastern Cape High Court.
Council Speaker Jonathan Lawack had chosen to hear the EFF sponsored motion after receiving advice on the matter.
