JOHANNESBURG – The Democratic Alliance’s (DA) Retief Odendaal is a mayoral candidate for the Nelson Mandela Bay metro.

A coalition agreement signed on Thursday saw the DA aligning itself with the African Christian Democratic Party (ACDP), the PAC (Pan Africanist Congress), the UDM (United Democratic Movement), the Freedom Front Plus (FF Plus), and others.
