Opposition party councillor withdraws

2016-07-13 06:00

COUNCILLOR Paul Buss, who has represented the DA as a PR councillor for the past 10 years, issued a statement to the Greytown Gazette as follows:

“I have withdrawn my candidature as a councillor in Umvoti for the 3 August 2016 local elections. The DA was informed of this decision on 22 June. Due to what I think are unattainable and unrealistic expectations of me by the DA, with the very limited active support I get from the community, I feel that it is time that I withdraw from politics.”
