We didn't get ANC votes - AIC

Pretoria - Allegations that the African Independent Congress (AIC) got votes meant for the ANC is an insult, the party said on Friday.

"We were established in 2005 and our people know us.

"To say we got ANC votes is to undermine our party," deputy president Lulama Ntshayisa said at the Electoral Commission results centre.

The party's name was printed above the African National Congress's on the national ballot paper.

Ntshayisa said his party wanted to contest the election in all provinces but lacked the funds to do so.

Contested

"We have members in all provinces. We lack resources to contest in other provinces," he said.

"We are not surprised at how we have performed nationally. We have people in all provinces."

He denied that voters could have confused the ANC with AIC.

The AIC had garnered 91 010 votes by 10:00 on Friday.

The Eastern Cape-based party contested the provincial election in the Eastern Cape and the Western Cape.

It collected 16 533 votes in the Eastern Cape and 6 266 in the Western Cape.
