Democratic <?xml:namespace prefix="st1" ns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags"?><city w:st="on"><place w:st="on">Alliance leader Helen Zille has announced the selection of first time candidates for the forthcoming general election.

Zille presented the final list at Parliament on Sunday and said that members of Parliament candidates received a clear job description even before being considered for their positions.

The candidates have been selected to stand in Parliament and the Provincial Legislatures around the country.

She also told the prospective parliamentarians and the media that although the DA may have lost some valuable people it has gained strong and diverse candidates.

A respected former University of Cape Town Professor was placed second on the Western Cape National Assembly list.

He said he was thrilled to be nominated in a public service role and added that the DA’s values were crucial to advance the country’s society.
