Why the DA?

The Democratic Alliance (DA) is the biggest opposition party and the second largest party in South Africa. We are the most diverse and dynamic party, and the only one to have grown in every election since 1994. The DA Received 22.2% of the votes in the National Assembly elections in 2014, and 26.9% in the 2016 Local Government Elections. But, more importantly, we are the only party with a credible, proven plan to create real jobs. Our dream for South Africa is of One Nation with One Future built on Freedom, Fairness and Opportunity for All, living together under the Constitution in peace, security and prosperity, with opportunity and recognition for all the rainbow people.
