Cape Town - Cape Town mayor Patricia de Lille has backed Lindiwe Mazibuko's candidacy as leader of the Democratic Alliance in Parliament.

"In helping our party to grow at unprecedented levels in the local government elections, Lindiwe has proved herself an exceptional leader and a formidable opponent of the ANC," De Lille wrote in a letter of endorsement released on Sunday.

"I believe that she is the best person to take our party forward in Parliament. In this historic moment, she is the best person for South Africa."

DA MP Mazibuko, 31, will stand against the party's current parliamentary caucus leader Athol Trollip in the elections on October 27.
