DA Shadow Minister of Public Enterprises Natasha Mazzone has been appointed the Chief Whip of the Democratic Alliance in the National Assembly.
“In the interim we are trying to create some stability here in parliament. She helped write the rules of parliament, she is competent and knows what needs to be done and that’s going to help manage a smooth transition in this period,” said Steenhuisen.
Natasha was appointed on Thursday morning by the new parliament leader John Steenhuisen who stepped in following Mmusi Maimane’s resignation as party leader a week ago.
