Johannesburg - The ruling ANC welcomed by-election results on Thursday, saying they were proof of its true leadership status in society.

"In keeping with our commitment to serve our people, the African National Congress has been resoundingly reaffirmed as a true leader of society judging by the outcomes of yesterday's [Wednesday's] by-elections nationally," said national spokesperson Zizi Kodwa in a statement.

The ruling party contested by-elections in five provinces - Western Cape, Eastern Cape, Limpopo, North West and KwaZulu-Natal - and won in seven of the 10 wards.

"Of the seven wards we won, we managed to wrestle a ward held by the DA in Matzikama [Vredendal], Western Cape. This augurs well for our preparation for local government elections next year.

"We thank the people of our country and the specific communities for demonstrating faith in the ANC and reaffirming our position as the leader of society," said Kodwa.
