ANC expects overwhelming majority - Zuma

2014-05-05 13:05

Johannesburg - The ANC's election campaign covered every part of the country and was successful, President Jacob Zuma said on Monday.

"We were in every town, city, and village," he told editors at a briefing in Johannesburg.

"We are very happy with the campaign. People have come in big numbers."

He said the rallies held in every province showed the African National Congress had overwhelming support in the country and that South Africans showed great enthusiasm.

Zuma said at some rallies stadiums were not big enough to accommodate the crowds. In Mbombela, Mpumalanga, he said there were more people outside the stadium than inside.

He expressed confidence that the ANC would enjoy an overwhelming victory after Wednesday's elections. After winning, Zuma said he would accelerate service delivery in the next administration.

"We want to move with greater speed this time."
