The Democratic Alliance leader John Steenhuisen said the party is eager to seek out and work with those who want to break free from the destructive status quo in politics brought on by continuous ANC and EFF sabotage of meetings.
Steenhuisen was speaking in a party’s press briefing on Wednesday.
“If there is a chance to pilot such a realignment in Tshwane Council, we will pursue it. We have a plan to restore service delivery.
The situation in Tshwane Council where the city has no mayor, no city manager and no mayoral committee, is frustrating to all who want to see services delivered to the people” he said.
Steenhuisen also said that the party had mandated mayoral candidate Randall Williams to seek solutions with the ANC and EFF in the city, but to date, they have been met with lack of interest from other parties.
“The destructive strategy of the ANC and EFF of collapsing meetings is a delaying tactic to buy these two parties time to broke a power-sharing deal at the expense of service delivery” he said.
The Democratic Alliance also announced that they are consulting with their lawyers to stop ANC government from using pension funds to bail out Eskom.
“Why should hardworking South Africans lose a lifetime worth of savings to save a sinking ship?
