JOHANNESBURG - Democratic Alliance leader John Steenhuisen is hopeful that the party will bring the ANC to below 50% of the vote in the 2024 elections.
He was speaking at the party's federal congress in Midrand on Saturday.
"We've defied our critics and we have come out of election 2021 stronger than ever before and we are now in fact, for a record result in 2024, where we must bring the ANC below 50% and rescue South Africa," he said.
The first day of the DA's federal congress has wrapped up in Midrand.
Delegates will vote for new party leadership on Sunday.
Current leader John Steenhuisen is up against former Johannesburg Mayor Mpho Phalatse.
