It couldn't be set up assuming that the EFF had likewise been drawn nearer by the DA or not. EFF didn't react to whether or not it would acknowledge a leader post proposal from the DA at the hour of distributing. 

The DA assumed control over the reins in Johannesburg, Tshwane and Ekurhuleni with the assistance of ActionSA and the Economic Freedom Fighters that deliberately chose to decide in favor of the DA city hall leaders and speakers. The actual DA was against shaping any alliance with the EFF and would not help Mashaba becoming Johannesburg civic chairman.

This stunned Moodey and his colleagues because they never brought up the issue of Mashaba to be city hall leader. 

The Citizen prior had found out if ActionSA would acknowledge a situation in the mayoral board whenever presented by the DA in the three metros, Mashaba said they didn't decide in favor of the DA to receive positions consequently yet simply to guarantee the ANC was out. 

"Let me get straight to the point about ActionSA' position. We didn't decide in favor of the DA to place them in a corner to haggle with us, we decided in favor of them to prevent the ANC from assuming control over these regions. DA is under no commitment at all to haggle with us," Mashaba said. 

He said the DA had "not connected up to now" concerning what it wanted to do with respect to the arrangement of individuals from the mayoral council nor whether it would remember ActionSA for the arrangements. "ActionSA is alright with our present situation of being in the resistance," Mashaba said. 

Prior Mashaba went against the arranged lady and acknowledgment discourse to be conveyed by Phalatse planned for Thursday.
