Having missed out on the mayorship of the City of Johannesburg, ActionSA leader Herman Mashaba could now also lose out on a consolation executive mayoral committee position.

This, despite his party having been at the forefront of ensuring the DA retained Tshwane and was able to unseat the ANC in Johannesburg and Ekurhuleni. 

The DA, as the party with the most seats in the coalition-led Gauteng councils, took the lead in fostering stability in the alliance governments by handing coalition agreements to those who partnered with it in the hung metros.
