ANC appreciates the continued support of our people during the by-elections

Ntombela MLD

The African National Congress is delighted by the outcomes of the results of the recent by-elections held in four wards contested in three provinces on Wednesday, 01 February 2017.

The ANC, with the continued overwhelming support of the people, retained three of the wards contested and won a Ward from the Democratic Alliance in George, Western Cape- the province that the DA considers as its stronghold.

Further, the ANC retained the highly contested Ward 12, Metsimaholo Municipality, in the Free State Province, which is an indication that the people of Metsimaholo have rejected the inexperienced Economic Freedom Fighters who had high hopes of winning the Ward.

The people of George also rejected the Democratic Alliance, by ensuring that the ANC won Ward 11, in George.

These results serve to confirm that the people of South Africa still have confidence in the governing party and their movement, the ANC. This is further testament that no other political party has the proven track record, experience and vision to unite the people of South Africa and move our country forward.

The ANC appreciates our people's support and thanks them for their continued trust in the ANC, as well as sincerely expresses its gratitude to our committed and selfless volunteers who continued to work tirelessly and ensured this victory for the ANC and the people.

I thank you
