Democratic Alliance leader Helen Zille says her party will oppose the budget for the Nelson Mandela Bay Metro.
Zille was in the metro to thank supporters for the party's increased showing in the recent local government elections.
The African National Congress-led council is battling to pass a budget with opposition from the DA as well as the Ratepayers Association. Zille says this is an indication of the ANC's division in the metro.
Zille thanked supporters for taking the party to over 40 percent of the vote in the metro.
