First black leader for South Africa’s opposition party?

  • ANC = majority party (approx. 62% of national vote).
  • Democratic Alliance (DA) = main opposition party (approx. 22% of national vote).
  • DA just elected their first black leader, Mmusi Maimane (the "Obama of Soweto"), to succeed Helen Zille (who has been leader for the last 8 years).
