The appointment of a new Cape Town mayoral committee has been postponed yet again.

New seats have to be filled as the DA has given Patricia de Lille the boot. She has since applied to the High Court in Cape Town to interdict the party from replacing her as mayor and to have her membership reinstated.

Acting mayor Ian Neilson on Monday said they had been informed that judgment would be delivered on Tuesday. He initially announced on Sunday that the new committee would be selected on Monday.

In his statement over the weekend he said: "I am required by statute to appoint a Mayoral Committee (Mayco) to assist me in the governance of the City‚ and I am ready to do so."

De Lille also took to Twitter to announce that judgment would be delivered on Tuesday.

She has used the social media platform to thank her supporters.

"I am eternally grateful for the messages of support from the whole country. God never sleeps‚" she tweeted.
