Mbali Ntuli for DA Leader 2020
Dear Democrats, I am resuming my campaign to be the new DA leader. Please watch my message here. I am looking forward to engaging with you all once again. Mbali Ntuli
Mbali Ntuli for DA
“On Friday, 7 February 2020, I officially announced my candidacy for Federal Leader of the Democratic Alliance at the upcoming Federal Congress in May. The announcement was made at a press conference at Impact Hub in Rosebank, Johannesburg. ”
Why vote for Mbali?
I’m running because we need politics in this country that is different. I want to make the party kind, strong, and fair. I’m running because I believe if we can show South Africans the people who really make up the DA, they would see the DA I see.
A DA of people doing their best to serve in a political climate that tries to crush their efforts at every turn.
BRING FAIRNESS BACK TO THE DA
If our members believe the organization is fair, and everyone has a fair stake in it, we will find common ground. So too in South Africa.
But we must internalise this as a party first. We must build a party where every member matters – where some are not more equal than others. Or those who shout the loudest get the biggest say.
CLEARING UP, ONCE AND FOR ALL, THE CONFUSION ABOUT WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE STAND FOR.
That means the upcoming policy conference and congresss is important. We must have the broader membership involved and part of that discussion. Every member is key in that process and we must make sure it has credibility.
RESTORING CONFIDENCE IN THE DA
It is cause for serious concern when South Africans lose faith in the DA because they know only the DA can save this country from populism and ruin.
Our leadership must have the strength and credibility to win not only the minds, but the hearts of South Africans. We need a leader who has a vision that reasonates with all South Africans. A leader who understands, and his lived the realities of all South Africans.
LASTLY, I WANT US TO RETURN THE FOCUS OF THE PARTY TO REALIGNING POLITICS IN SOUTH AFRICA
We have to win again. We need to be the core of a new majority with people and parties who share our values so we can become the next government and make South Africa work.
