2014-05-08 13:16
Kimberly - The Economic Freedom Fighters have garnered four (1.37%) national votes in the right-wing Orania in the Northern Cape, according to the latest election results on Thursday.

The Freedom Front Plus is the leading party in the town with 224 of the vote (76.98%), while the ruling African National Congress won five votes nationally (1.72%).

The dominant FF Plus seems to be losing some ground compared to the previous polls where they enjoyed 242 of the vote.
