The recent by-elections results show once more that the ANC remains the party of choice for the people. Forty (40) by-elections were held across 25 municipalities in the Eastern Cape, Free State, Gauteng, KwaZulu-Natal, Limpopo and Mpumalanga provinces on the 19th May 2021.
The African National Congress retained 27 wards, lost one ward and won 3 new wards.
Overall, the ANC won 51,9% of the votes compared to 16,37 % and 10.47% by the DA and EFF respectively.
The support for the ANC by the people demonstrates the faith they continue to have in the policies and principles of the organisation. We humbly thank the people for going out and demonstrating, via their vote, the confidence they continue to have in the ANC and we assure them that we stand ready to continuing serving.
