It will be and elective congress for all leadership positions in the province.

At a DA Eastern Cape Provincial Council meeting held recently at Fish River Sun, incumbent party leader in the province and now Mayor of Nelson Mandela Bay, Athol Trollip, announced his intention to step down and not stand for re-election as Provincial Leader at the next Congress.

The August election was a tipping point that heralds the complete realignment of our politics.

We are growing new leaders in the Democratic Alliance, and we are the only party that can move South Africa forward again.

We will continue to grow our support and build a majority for all South Africans who share our values and vision.

The DA’s Federal Executive approved a February congress for the Eastern Cape and branches are set to hold their AGM’s during the months of November and December to elect delegates to attend the Provincial Congress in February 2017.

The Eastern Cape will be a highly competitive battleground in 2019, and we need to have strong Leaders within our structures to take us on that path.
