Where we govern

DA-led Governments

Since the 2016 Local Government Elections, around 16 million South Africans experience some form of DA governance. In addition to the Western Cape Province, the DA currently governs in 33 municipalities. These include 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.

Governing these four metros means that the DA, and its various coalition governments, now controls R139.5 billion worth of public money. We control more money in South Africa’s major cities than the ANC does – and we plan to spend it wisely.

WE’VE GOT THE STATS TO BACK US

DA-run governments are recognised as among the best in South Africa by national government and a variety of other agencies. While we recognise that where we govern there is still much to be done to redress past imbalances, we are working every day to ensure further progress is being made that improves the lives of all residents where we govern.
