Port Elizabeth - The Council meeting that was due to hear a motion of no confidence in Nelson Mandela Bay Mayor Athol Trolip has been postponed.
The meeting was postponed after opposition parties, including the ANC, UDM and EFF, walked out of the council meeting following numerous attempts to proceed.
The EFF, AIC, UDM and ANC claimed that the council meeting on Thursday was “illegal”. Opposition councillors said that they had received the agenda late.
Speaker Jonathan Lawack, however, said the agenda was distributed in adequate time.
This was the fourth bid to unseat Trollip from office. At a late-night meeting on Wednesday, opposition parties could not agree on a mayoral candidate.
