Wits University’s Vice Chancellor and Principal, Adam Habib, says the Democratic Alliance (DA) has to decide its position on the South African political stage.

This after DA Parliamentary Leader, Lindiwe Mazibuko announced that she's resigning from her position to study at Harvard University in the United States.

However, Habib says the DA's challenges go well beyond Mazibuko's move.

“I think there is a bigger challenge for the DA. I think that the performance of the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) suggest that the real gap in the electorate is not the right of the African National  Congress (ANC), but it’s to the left of the ANC. The DA has to start asking itself does it want to be  a party of minorities of the future or does it want to constitute a real majority,” adds Habib.

Habib says in the next couple of years the DA should strive to make a real dent in the African National Congress (ANC).
