- The African National Congress (ANC) in the Eastern Cape welcomes the results of the by-elections which were held on Wednesday, 23 October 2019.The by-elections were held in 3 Wards (Ward 7- Umzimvubu, Ward 34 – Enoch Mgijima & Ward 5 – Amahlathi which was uncontested) in the Province.
These results are once again a confirmation that the ANC remains the people’s movement. It is the ANC that is most suitable to lead and work together with the people of this country towards a prosperous South Africa wherein poverty, unemployment and inequality will be meaningfully addressed. We thank our communities for the show of confidence in the ANC and it’s leadership.
We equally wish the newly elected councillors in all the wards success with them, knowing that theirs is to serve and put the people of South Africa at the centre of our project of radical socio-economic transformation. The ANC thanks all those who went to cast their vote and affirmed the people’s movement.
The regular elections held in our country are an affirmation that our democracy is alive and well as well as a practical expression of our commitment to the Freedom Charter demand that the people shall govern; no government can justly claim authority unless it is based on the will of the people.
