THE Democratic Alliance Provincial Executive Committee in Gauteng has appointed the DA Gauteng Caucus Leader, Solly Msimanga MPL to the position of acting DA Gauteng Provincial Leader.
This follows the resignation of John Moodey on Wednesday. Msimanga is a former Provincial Chairperson.
The party said in a statement that Msimanga is the leader of the official opposition in the Gauteng Provincial Legislature, has vast knowledge of the party and has held various leadership positions within the province.
The DA in Gauteng said it believes that Msimanga will provide stability to the party in the province.
“Msimanga’s leadership skills will bring a positive force to all our structures until the Provincial Congress where the new provincial leader will be elected,” said Mike Moriarty, DA’s provincial chairperson.
“We remain committed to growing our support across the province and to ensure that we work towards our main goal of unseating the ANC under Msimanga’s leadership.”
