Paul Boughey, CEO of the DA has resigned

 

 

Paul Boughey, the chief executive officer of the Democratic Alliance, has resigned. A report commissioned by the party to look into the party’s dismal performance in the 2019 general election is widely reported to recommend that both Boughey, and party leader Mmusi Maimane vacate their positions. Boughey’s move on Thursday afternoon is seen to have preempted the anticipated call for his resignation at this weekend’s federal executive council meeting.

Maimane however is expected to fight for his job and will rely on the council to decide his future.

This is a developing story and will be updated as more details emerge.
