IT’s D-DAY for the four people hoping to be selected as the DA’s mayoral candidate.
A special party electoral college will convene this evening to nominate the party’s official mayoral candidate for the City of Cape Town.
They are incumbent Dan Plato, mayoral committee member for social development Grant Pascoe, his colleague on the mayoral committee responsible for housing, Shehaam Sims, and ID leader Patricia De Lille.
The four will have to answer to a 32-member electoral college. Each will appear before the panel made up of 10 members of the party’s federal executive, five members of the regional executive, five provincial executive members, and 10 members elected by the electoral colleges in the Cape metro.
The other two members are provincial party leader Theuns Botha and national leader Helen Zille.
