EFF withdraws motion of no confidence in Trollip

EFF withdraws motion of no confidence in Trollip”

Opposition parties in the Nelson Mandela Bay (NMB) city council will on Thursday have another go at trying to unseat Mayor Athol Trollip.

He says the DA would like a good working relationship with the EFF and a stable administration in order to improve the lives of people living in the metro.

He faces a motion of no confidence. The previous two sittings, on March 29 and April 10, were postponed after a series of disruptions within the council chambers.

The DA in the Eastern Cape had also indicated that motions tabled against speaker Jonathan Lawack and chief whip Werner Senekal had also been withdrawn in the special council meeting on Thursday‚ together with the motion against Trollip.

The Patriotic Alliance's (PA) Marlon Daniels withdrew the motion to have the mayoral committee removed.

The no-confidence motion against Trollip was brought forward by the EFF, whose leader Julius Malema called for the DA to be punished for not voting for the EFF's motion for expropriation of land without compensation in Parliament.

The ANC had its opportunity, but the ANC and EFF objected to the DA being given an opportunity to pay tribute to Madikizela-Mandela.

The United Democratic Movement, African National Congress and EFF needs 61 votes out of a 120-council seat for the motion to succeed.
