ANC statement on by-elections

8 November 2012

The African National Congress is happy with the outcome of yesterday`s by-elections that saw it win eleven of the fifteen wards contested in eight provinces.

Of the eleven wards that were held by the ANC, we lost a ward in the Northwest to an independent and won a DA ward in Matsikama in the Western Cape.

This is a demonstration that the ANC remains rooted in its constituencies and it continues to sustain its base and is also making inroads in wards previously held by the DA particularly in the Western Cape Province.

We want to thank all those that reaffirmed their confidence in the ANC because of its commitment to change and transformation. The ANC will intensify its efforts to regain its lost ground in the Western Cape Province.
