Democratic Alliance leader Helen Zille says unity among opposition parties will be a process and not one big-bang event. Zille spoke at a special Independent Democrats conference today.

She says she and ID leader Patricia de Lille have, jointly and severally, met leaders of other parties over the past four years. Zille says like-minded opposition parties have to stand together to save the country’s democracy from the African National Congress.

Opening the conference earlier today ID leader Patricia de Lille said “The engagement with other political parties must be informed by 8 Main Principles and Objectives that have up until now guided the principles and values of the Independent Democrats.”

“The ID is an unashamedly social democratic party that is committed to clean governance and [to] fighting for issues of social justice,” the Process Document stated.
