Johannesburg – The Gauteng ANC is concerned that it did not receive more than 50% of the votes in some of the province’s municipalities and will reflect on the issues voters had raised.

“We will not shy away from some weaknesses that have been identified, but will engage communities throughout the province to find speedy and meaningful solutions,” it said in a statement on Saturday.

Support for the ANC dropped to below 50% in all three metros in the province. It lost Tshwane with 41.22% of the vote, as opposed to the DA’s 43.12%.

It retained Johannesburg with 44.55% of the votes and Ekurhuleni with 48.64%. The DA got 38.37% and 34.15% respectively.

The ANC said it had already started negotiating with other political parties to form coalitions.

It commend the IEC, state security agencies, and voters for ensuring peaceful, free and fair elections.

“We do not take any of the support and confidence given to us by the people of our province for granted.”
