ANC Statement on the Elections Results of 08 May 2018

AFRICAN NATIONAL CONGRESS-NORTHERN CAPE ON THE ELECTIONS RESULTS

The African National Congress in the Northern Cape welcomes with humility, the outcome of the 2019 National and Provincial Elections results as released by the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC). The elections outcomes are as a result of hard work, selflessness and commitment which ANC and alliance structures and volunteers tirelessly paced themselves throughout the length and breadth of the Northern Cape. We are extremely grateful for the efforts of these gallant Mandela and Sisulu Volunteers and the Red Brigades who answered the clarion Thuma Mina call.

The ANC would like to extend its profound gratitude to the people of Northern Cape who braved the cold weather to exercise their democratic right. We commit ourselves as the ANC alliance to improve the quality of life of the people of our province, and to ensure that we grow our economy and create more decent jobs and fight poverty, unemployment and inequality. We are cognizant of the magnitude of the work that lies ahead, the ANC will during the next two weeks go back to our communities to thank them for the support and pledge our commitment to working with them in ensuring that we better their lives.

Having looked at the real figures of the outcome of this election wherein we received 227 955 votes and an overall voter turnout of about 64%, we are indeed pleased that the democratic program is on course in the Northern Cape and South Africa. The voters have given us an overwhelming mandate to carry out the commitments wherein we received more than 126 800 votes in comparison to our nearest political opponents and this figure is significant in a less populated Province like the Northern Cape.

We are saddened by the passing on of one of our young volunteers, Cde Siyabonga Asiya who passed on whilst on duty at the Isibane Voting District in Colesberg. We would like to extend our sincere and deepest condolences to the family, friends and comrades of Comrade Siyabonga Asiya.
