Johannesburg - The DA believes next week’s local government elections are a two-horse race and have urged voters not to waste their votes on smaller parties.

This as the party prepares to conclude what it says has been a comprehensive campaign that has reached all corners of the country.

According to DA strategic advisor, Jonathan Moakes, voters risked handing back some municipalities to the ANC if they decided to split the vote by voting for smaller parties.

“It's clear that this is a two-horse race between us and the ANC. It's best to put weight behind the DA which is the only party that can beat the ANC and change people's lives,” said Moakes.

The party will this weekend descend on Dobsonville in Soweto, the birthplace of its leader Mmusi Maimane, for the closing rally of its election campaign.

DA spokeswoman Phumzile van Damme said Dobsonville Stadium, where the rally will be held, was not much smaller that the Rand Stadium where the party launched its manifesto.
