GOOD party leader Patricia De Lille said voters should be respected for the choices they make in the first local elections in November.
De Lille was speaking in a one-on-one interview with SABC News political editor Mzwandile Mbeje:
She says that although her party is new, it has a lot of experience in local government. De Lille was mayor of Cap from 2011 until his resignation in 2018 after fallout with the Democratic Alliance. She currently serves in the national government as Minister of Public Works.
“People are looking for choices, elections are a contestation of ideas, it’s about putting your ideas in and I think whoever the critic is they should respect the choice people make because they will sift through it. We have a lot of experience in local government, that’s what we bring to the table. “
Unfinished business in Cape Town
De Lille says she has unfinished business in Cape Town. De Lille was mayor from 2011 and re-elected in 2016, but did not complete the second term after falling out with the DA. De Lille said his party would like to complete its land-use planning projects which, she says, were put aside by the prosecutor after she left. She says she wants previously underprivileged communities to live closer to the city.
“There is no doubt that a lot of unfinished business, which is close to my heart is the layout of the space. We have done very little to fight apartheid land use planning and I want to bring people together in the city in 2016 and that was the start of the fallout with the blue liars.
Regarding her post as Minister of Public Works, De Lille says she is happy to sit in the ANC government.
She says that despite allegations of corruption that are sometimes brought against the government, she is happy to serve the country in any capacity.
“I am happy to serve my country. I have no problem, I am very, very happy to serve in any capacity, I am not corrupt.
