ANC once again is victorious in By-Elections

YV Phosa

Once again the African National Congress has proven wrong its rivals by retaining two wards in Ekurhuleni and the City of Cape Town with a big margin on Wednesday, 15 November 2017. The ANC retained Ward 59, in Ekurhuleni, with 65.86% and Ward 93, in the City of Cape Town, with 69.98%. This victory is a clear indication that the ANC's efforts of restoring the people's confidence in their movement is on track. It also shows that the effort to reclaim lost ground in the metropolitan municipalities, is slowly but surely getting momentum.

Clearly this support from voters show that the ANC continues to be the party of choice for most South Africans and that the service delivery achievements of the ANC are being rewarded. People of ward 59 in Ekurhuleni and ward 93 in Cape Town recognize that under the ANC, their lives have changed for a better. The ANC congratulates and thanks its members, supporters and volunteers for their selfless efforts ahead of the by-elections. We would like to thank the Independent Electoral Commissions for delivering a free, fair and credible elections.

I thank you
