South Africa's Official Opposition Shadow Cabinet consists of Members of the National Assembly who scrutinise their corresponding office holders in the executive branch of government and develop alternative policies for their respective portfolios. The Democratic Alliance retained their position as official opposition following the 2009 general elections and announced their shadow cabinet on May 15.[1]

The Official Opposition Shadow Cabinet is led by Athol Trollip, the Democratic Alliance's parliamentary leader. Trollip represents party leader Helen Zille, who is at present Premier of the Western Cape. The Shadow Cabinet includes the Democratic Alliance's Federal Executive Chairperson James Selfe, former President of AgriSA Lourie Bosman, CODESA negotiator Dene Smuts, along with former Fulbright Scholars Sej Motau and Wilmot James, former Rhodes Scholar Gareth Morgan and Harvard Mason Fellow David Maynier.
