Steenhuisen aims to take the DA 'back on to the path to victory' via SABCNewsOnline

“May I start by saying how humbled I have been by the support shown by the party to elect me as the interim leader of this party. This is obviously a huge responsibility and as I committed to the Federal Council, I will dedicate every ounce of my fibre, my being and my energy to restoring our party to glory and taking us back on to the path to victory.”

Steenhuisen says the party is the only one that is fighting for a non-racial South Africa. He says the DA will focus on correcting the legacy of apartheid. “We are in fact the only party that’s fighting for a truly non-racial SA to exist and we also believe – and I want to be explicit and clear here – that the DA believes the legacy of apartheid must be corrected through targeted redress. We are going to be a party that sees every South African regardless of their colour, their language, their culture and their geographic location as a person of true worth and limitless potential, not just as a demographic status.
