# The DA welcomed the election of its candidate, Geordin Hill-Lewis, as the mayor of Cape Town. The 34-year-old became the youngest person ever in the position. DA-leader John Steenhuisen says the party has full confidence in Hill-Lewis to lead the city and continue to implement the DA’s mandate of clean governance. Steenhuisen adds Cape Town is the only major metro in the country where a political party received an outright majority from voters. It is also the only major metro where a council meeting has thus far been held.
