EDITORIAL: End of an era for the DA
DA in uncharted waters after resignation of federal executive chairman
In a surprising turn of events the DA over the weekend said the long-serving chairman of its federal executive, James Selfe, will step down from the post in October.
Having served effectively as the party’s political CEO for almost two decades, Selfe can be seen as part of the DA’s furniture. The fact that he was elected unopposed just more than a year ago makes his resignation two years before the DA is set to go to its next federal congress, where it will elect its next leadership, quite extraordinary.
