What is it about the Democratic Alliance (DA) that dissuades you from voting for them in the 2016 local government elections?
South Africans expressed their views about the official opposition of the country. Redi Tlhabi posed the question about the African National Congress (ANC) on Tuesday.
She will continue with this question about the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) and smaller opposition parties over the following days.
702/Cape Talk's Redi Tlhabi gave listeners to share their views, which will inform how they vote.
Listen to the conversation below:
Because the same areas that were won by the National Party in the 1994 elections are being won by the DA today.— Lizobuya, caller in Phelindaba
The arrogance that is still being shown by white South Africans, the ignorance of the problems that our people are facing.— Tshepo, caller in Rivonia
White people go under the umbrella of the DA to protect the wealth they benefitted from the past regime.— Glen, caller in Rosebank
The DA's relationship with the ruling party during the apartheid era, the National Party (NP), and the demographic representation of the party were dominant issues of concern for voters.
DA does not support Affirmative Action, does not support BEE, does not recognise the imbalances of the past.— Mike, caller in Kempton Park
I expect a lot more from the opposition, the DA has a history as a political party prior to democracy... I expect a lot more solutions, it's easy to stand up and criticise.— Rob, caller in Sandton
