Ryan Coetzee said : “As is the case in any party, there is sometimes disagreement about how to go about things, but the DA has always been unified behind the two objectives.

Ryan Coetzee said ( about Helen Zille ) : "There is a risk in having a coalition, there is clearly a downside, there is a vulnerability. What you have to assess is whether you are capable of managing that vulnerability so it is not exposed and, instead, it is used to the benefit of the party. In (DA mayoral candidate Helen) Zille we had the right person. You have to set up an agreement and then manage the relationships. We got the mayor and we got the money and, in Zille, someone able to manage the relationships" External link

Ryan Coetzee says : "I remember that under no circumstances were we prepared to be in a government with the ANC. We were prepared to be in opposition rather. But we had to show that we had an open mind. So, we took a position we knew the ANC wouldn’t agree to. And the ANC did exactly the same thing. They had no interest in being in a government with us. So they took a position they knew we would never agree to," External link

Ryan Coetzee says : "We had this hilarious meeting with the ANC, where we set out our position.

And they said, very politely, ‘Oh that is very nice, our position is we want the mayoralty and control of the executive committee’. And we said, very politely, ‘Oh, okay, thank you. Well, we can’t agree to that.’ And then everybody said, ‘Well, it looks like we can’t agree but, you know, thanks for the chat’. And off we all went" External link

Ryan Coetzee says : "The ANC called for a break halfway through proceedings, corralled the PAC into a room and there harangued them while we freaked out.

Ryan Coetzee says : "We wouldn’t agree to the ID holding the balance of power in a committee system because they didn’t hold the balance of power in the council, that is, among the electorate. Our point was that if their votes and the ANC’s votes didn’t equal a majority, then their seats on the committee and the ANC’s seats could also not constitute a majority.
