On 3 August 2016, the DA contested the 2016 Local Government Elections. As a result of our performance, we now run 37 municipalities, including South Africa’s legislative capital, Cape Town; the administrative capital, Tshwane, our economic centre, Johannesburg; and the city named after our democracy’s founding father, Nelson Mandela Bay.
Going forward, we will continue to build on our record of effective service delivery in the cities and towns where we govern, and take the promise of clean, efficient governance to even more places across South Africa. Read more about our record of delivery where we now govern here.
Once you have experienced the DA difference in your municipality or province – once you have seen what a clean and efficient government can do for your community – you won’t go back to what you had before.
Where the DA governs, we never forget who hired us and we never forget who we serve. We are not perfect, and there are many things we’re working hard to be better at. But we know what we were hired to do, and we spend every single cent of public money on the people.
