On the sidelines of his campaign, Leon answered question ranging from former DA leader Helen Zille’s legacy as Western Cape premier for 10 years.

“We have had disagreements as we must and should but broadly we are different leaders in a different vision of this country but she has delivered results where it has been applied,” Leon said.

Leon also addressed the DA’s coalition options, Mmusi Maimane’s leadership and race-based redress policies such as BEE and affirmative action.
