Mmusi Maimane, DA leader, and James Selfe, Federal Council chair, are confirmed to be keeping their positions in the coming federal congress while other members rest.
ENW reported that over 40 DA members have been elected for various positions in the party ahead of the congress taking place on 7 March.
Briefly.co.za learnt that this will be the largest congress the DA has ever held, with more than 2,000 of its members expected.
Anchen Dreyer, DA chief election officer, officially released the names of members who will battle it out, for their desired positions, at this year’s congress.
“In the Federal Chairperson, we’ve three nominations there: Annelie Lotriet, Solly Msimanga, and Athol Trollip.”
Dreyer highlighted that race is not their focus, despite being accused of being a white driven party.
“We’re truly a party for all. We’re also appointing or nominating people who are fit for purpose.”
Provincial leaders have already been elected and no fuss or drama has come about over the selections thus far.
