DA short on black candidates

2014-03-16 11:00
Cape Town - The Democratic Alliance is facing a race dilemma over the lack of senior black African candidates on the party’s Western Cape and Gauteng candidate lists, the Sunday Independent reported.

According to the newspaper, the DA has only five black African candidates in its top 27 list for the Western Cape while the party’s Gauteng list is equally devoid of black African candidates.

The party was expected to use the list to showcase its diversity and show its representation, reported the newspaper. But there were now concerns that there could be a repeat of the 2009 election drama when the party’s leader Hellen Zille appointed an all-male cabinet with mostly white people, the paper added.

This comes after the DA’s Gauteng premier candidate Mmusi Maimane revealed last month that the party had “sought out the best candidates”. “We have candidates of all age spectrums and from as diverse a range as possible”, he was reported to have said at the time of submitting his party's candidates list to the IEC.
