DA announces provincial leadership election results


The Democratic Alliance (DA), held its North West, Western Cape and West Rand Provincial Congress on Saturday 21 November 2020, whereby the leadership election results were announced.

In the North West, delegates made use of the online OpaVote platform to elect the new leadership team, who have now been mandated to lead the province into the 2021 local government election cycle and beyond, for the next three years.

Presiding Officer: North West Provincial Congress Werner Horn said; “I am satisfied that the election process was entirely compliant with our requirements and rules. The results have been accepted by all candidates, their party agents and all the delegates in attendance at the Provincial Congress.” 

“I would like to thank all candidates and delegates for their participation in the Congress in line with our rules promoting a strong internal democratic culture,” he added. 


The results are as follows; 

  • Provincial Leader – Basson, Leon;
  • Deputy Provincial Leader – Sonakile, Freddy;
  • Provincial Chairperson – Snyders, Luan;
  • Deputy Provincial Chairpersons x 3 – Van Zyl, Don; Mabunda, Nkateko and Rossouw, Erna. 

“I would like to extend my congratulations to the newly elected North West Provincial Leadership and wish them all the best in their efforts to take the DA forward in the province, to rebuilt trust with the electorate and to continue the fight for quality basic service delivery and good governance,” added Horn. 


Basson released a statement on Saturday claiming he has big plans for the province following the DA North West Provincial Congress. 

“Look at North West, where people are suffering without water and electricity supply. Look at North West, where ANC corruption is not only killing jobs, but also the hope and future of people,” he said. 

Basson said the dedication and the passionate commitment of our public representatives, candidates, and activists will determine their success.

  • We must get back to the ABC of politics – activism, branches and campaigning in North West;
  • Ensure that our communication strategy to the media speaks to the interests of voters;
  • Measure every decision we take against our values and principles; and 
  • Empower councillors and activists with excellent training and support to build and grow the DA throughout the North West. We need to improve our relationship with voters, in every ward, in every community and give voice to the concerns they hold close to heart.


The newly elected Western Cape Provincial leadership are as follows;

  • Provincial Leader – Bonginkosi Madikizela;
  • Provincial Deputy Leader – Albert Fritz;
