Democratic Alliance

Former journalist and anti-apartheid activist Helen Zille is leading the centrist party Democratic Alliance, the ANC’s main opponent. Her critics say she lacks the credibility and political savvy to connect with South Africa’s Black majority, while her supporters credit her with defending the country’s liberal constitution and keeping the ANC in check.
