Cape Town mayor Patricia de Lille has resigned from her dual role as leader of the Democratic Alliance in the Western Cape, the party confirmed on Monday.

DA leader Mmusi Maimane’s office said the position would be filled by the party’s deputy leader in the province, Human Settlements MEC Bonginkosi Madikizela, until a new leader was elected at a provincial congress later this year.
