Johannesburg - Democratic Alliance leader Helen Zille will not be available for re-election as DA leader after eight years at the helm.

Zille made the announcement in Johannesburg on Sunday following a federal executive meeting.

Zille has led the DA since 2007.

The announcement comes a month before the party holds its federal congress in Port Elizabeth next month.

Nominations for leadership close on 20 April.
