Mayor Trollip's no confidence vote cancelled

Mayor Trollip's no confidence vote cancelled

A motion of no confidence in Nelson Mandela Bay Mayor Athol Trollip is set to be debated within the next fourteen days. By 11:10am‚ the whips of the various political parties had requested a 10-minute break to hold a meeting between them with Lawack.

UDM councillor Mongameli Bobani raised the point that the first item on the agenda is to remove DA's Jonathan Lawack as speaker.

Nelson Mandela Bay council speaker Jonathan Lawack has indefinitely adjourned Thursday's special council meeting after chaos erupted in the council in the morning.

Opposition Councillors pushed for the vote against Mayor Athol Trollip to go ahead, but Lawack stuck to his ruling that the special meeting, dealing with the motion against him and other councillors, must be adjourned.

An attempt to resume the meeting was unsuccessful after scuffles broke out between DA and EFF councillors, prompting the speaker to leave the chambers.

Another issue of contention was the presence of DA leader Mmusi Maimane at at the meeting.

Crowds gathered outside the city hall at noon, united against the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) and African National Congress (ANC) "coalition of corruption" seeking to oust the mayor.

If the no-confidence vote ends in a tie, rules dictate that the speaker - who in this case is a DA member - has the deciding vote.

A normal meeting is expected to reconvene later.
