South African opposition party, The Democratic Alliance, has elected 44-year-old John Steenhuisen, who has acted as interim party leader since its first Black leader Mmusi Maimane stepped down more than a year ago, as its new leader. Al Jazeera reports that Steenhuisen’s triumph, which saw him secure a whopping 80 percent of Sunday’s virtual vote over his competitor, Mbali Ntuli, will see him lead the DA in the 2024 presidential elections against the ANC.
