ANC thanks Gauteng voters

2014-05-09 22:03
Johannesburg - The ANC in Gauteng expressed its gratitude to voters on Friday for keeping the party in power.

By 21:00 on Friday, the ANC had secured 53.68% of the Gauteng provincial vote, with 98.64% of the province's votes counted.

"A humble thank you to all voters in Gauteng who came out in their large numbers to exercise their democratic right and responsibility to elect a government of their choice," spokesperson Nkenke Kekana said in a statement.

"The ANC provincial leadership is pleased with the election results and appreciates the show of continued confidence and a clear mandate for ANC to govern Gauteng."

The win ensured that the ruling party remained in control of Gauteng, the fourth-largest economy in Africa.

"The overall tally of votes so far show that Gauteng and KwaZulu-Natal each contributed about 2.5 million votes out of the 11.4 million ANC won nationally," Kekana said.

"The ANC does not take any vote for granted."

The national provisional results showed that the ANC had 62.18% of votes, with 99.94% of votes counted.

Kekana said the ANC in Gauteng intended to tackle all the issues that were brought to its attention during the election campaign.
