DA PROVINCIAL chairperson Isak Fritz has been selected as the party’s Northern Cape premier candidate for 2024.

DA national leader John Steenhuisen said Fritz has been actively involved in the party for nearly three decades where he was a member of the provincial legislature and served as caucus chairperson and as chief whip.

“He is a member of the social development and health portfolios where he has passionately championed the issues of access to quality health care, education and social services for the upliftment of Northern Cape communities across the Province,” said Steenhuisen.

He stated that Fritz would prioritise ending load shedding, cutting red tape and improving access to quality health care and basic services.

“In the last election, the ANC in the Northern Cape clung to power with less than a single percent of the vote. Never before has the ANC in the Northern Cape come so close to losing its majority. The DA seeks to form relationships with like-minded opposition parties through the multi-party charter to oust the ANC and EFF in the 2024 national general elections.

“We want to instil clean governance and fight the scourge of cadre deployment. No one should be above the law – even sitting presidents in possession of large amounts of foreign currency.”

Fritz pointed out that the Northern Cape had 13 hung municipalities which the DA aimed to take control of and deliver quality services to the local communities.
