Last night, the DA in the Eastern Cape held a Congress gala dinner where I was announced as the new DA Provincial Chairperson in the Eastern Cape. I am ecstatic and extremely proud of this result as it truly shows that the Democratic Alliance is a party for all.
This result is a true demonstration of the diversity of our party and it reiterates the DA’s equal opportunity society for all policy; it provides individuals from different cultural backgrounds an equal opportunity to succeed in our society and our party.
This morning three individuals were announced as the new Deputy Chairpersons of the DA in the Eastern Cape; they are – Retief Odendaal, Rory Gailey and Lodewyk Gallant. We are extremely proud of them and we know that they will represent the party well. We wish them all the best on their journey of service and leadership.
The new Deputy Provincial Leaders are Bobby Stevenson and Terrence Fritz, congratulations to them!
The DA will continue to create positive change in the Eastern Cape and provide equal opportunities to all residents of this province and we will bring change to local municipal governance in 2016 where we will showcase what a DA government can do.
