NEWS REPORT: Steenhuisen: ‘DA is the only party fighting for a truly non-racial SA’ By News24

Newly elected interim leader John Steenhuisen has promised to turn the party's recent election set back into the biggest comeback in political history.

The emergence of Steenhuisen as party leader has solidified the return of the classical liberal bloc into power in South Africa’s second-largest party with race remaining an issue.

In advancing his argument that race being used as a proxy for the disadvantage has failed ordinary black South Africans, Steenhuisen said he said his DA will pursue this goal of fighting poverty.

“We must repossession the DA as a government in waiting. We must also regain the trust of the voters. Steenhuisen will have in me a co-leader to support and rebuild the party, but the real challenge is to save SA.
