Dan Plato Elected as Cape Town Mayor for Second Time in a Decade

Dan Plato, who replaced Helen Zille as Cape Town Mayor in 2009, has been elected for the position again after receiving 146 of 208 votes cast in a secret ballot at a special council meeting. Plato's election comes after the resignation of former mayor Patricia De Lille who vacated the post after a series of legal battles with the Democratic Alliance.
