CAPE TOWN – The recently formed Good party on Sunday announced four candidates.

Patricia de Lille is the party's choice for Western Cape premier, while Lehlohonolo Mtshali is the Gauteng candidate.

De Lille started the Good party late last year after walking away from the Democratic Alliance (DA) following a public spat and legal battles.

Mtshali resigned as a DA councillor in the Ekurhuleni Metro in January 2017.

Now he returns to politics as Good's Gauteng premier candidate.

“Youth unemployment, I think, it’s the biggest issue here in South Africa.”

Vivian Law's name has been put forward for the North West.

Law was involved in politics until she resigned as a Congress of the People NEC member in 2011.

“I started an NGO called Parliament of the People and we’ve been doing work on the ground in our communities.”

Good's Northern Cape premier candidate is Leonard McKay.

He resigned as an ANC member in 2010.

Party officials are now on a drive to present its election manifesto to the people, starting in the Western Cape this coming weekend.
