Cape Town - Marius Fransman will serve for a second term as the ANC’s Western Cape provincial chairperson.

He was elected unopposed for the position early on Sunday morning.

At the start of the party’s provincial conference, Fransman told reporters his successor would have to build stronger cohesion within the party to “disrupt the DA in this province by 2019”.

In his political report on Saturday night, Fransman said winning over the coloured working class within the city was the ANC’s greatest challenge, blaming tactical errors of the party’s previous leadership between 2005 and 2009, including “the assumption that the coloured vote was not relevant nor needed in order to win the Western Cape".

While the ANC was making inroads in the rural parts of the province, the “Cape Flats is more evasive”, he said.

The election of the rest of the provincial executive committee is currently underway.
