ANC wants in-depth analysis of election results

2014-05-13 16:39

Johannesburg - The ANC in Gauteng has asked its provincial election team (PET) to do an in-depth analysis of the election results, as echoed by Public Enterprises Minister Malusi Gigaba at the weekend.

"The ANC Gauteng provincial executive committee [PEC] met last night in Johannesburg to receive a high-level election report," spokesperson Nkenke Kekana said in a statement on Tuesday.

"The PEC tasked the PET to do an in-depth analysis and report back in one week."

Kekana did not disclose the contents of the report.

Gigaba told reporters at Luthuli House on Sunday that a thorough analysis of the general election would be carried out to look at voting patterns across the country.

Kekana said the party was concerned by the party's drop in support.

"A thorough analysis of the results will help us to address the concerns of voters across the province," he said.

The PEC decided on the candidates it would send to the Gauteng legislature, National Assembly, and the National Council of Provinces. Kekana did not disclose any names.

He said the party had not yet discussed the premier post in Gauteng.

"As per our conference resolution on premierships, the PEC will discuss and recommend three names to be considered by the national executive committee."

    Service delivery sir. People have entrusted you with their lives. The analysis you should be having is how to adress issues that caused protests around the country.

      Ivan van Heerden - 2014-05-13 17:13

      Well said! Of course that won't happen though. It will probably end up being apartheids fault.

      Xenswim1 - 2014-05-13 17:36

      Typical ANC only when it finally sees a potential crisis does it react. It is obvious in the ANC never cared as they should have done this in depth analysis 2009, But then they we not threatened with vote losses.

      Mike Heyns - 2014-05-13 17:40

      So "Juju" may have a real job after all?? Analyst... OK, only 5,999,999 more job opportunities to go!

      Jonathan Woods - 2014-05-13 18:36

      Again just clarifying that the have absolutely no clue of what they are actually supposed to be doing as the elected government! And the next five years will be filled with committees investigating the first committee which was appointed to investigate some obscure failure that no one can understand!

      Jason Marriott - 2014-05-13 19:01

      People should stop protesting and show their protests with their votes. with 62% people didn't do this. Basically given Zuma and co a mandate to continue doing what they doing....

      Pierre Nortje - 2014-05-13 19:22

      Its all apartheids fault - do not blame anyone or anything else -

      Sterling Ferguson - 2014-05-13 21:42

      In most democracies the ANC would have been kicked out of office and they are lucky to get this many votes. The tribal votes are the ones that save the party.

  • Karl Kat - 2014-05-13 16:50

    Well if they are going to continue with bad governance, poor service delivery, misuse funds, cadre deployment and not creating a environment for the economy to grow and attrack foreign investment they will loose more support

  • stefan.strydom.902 - 2014-05-13 16:52

    I wonder why? Are they suspecting themselves of fraud?? What plonk heads!!

  • martina.prchalova.14 - 2014-05-13 16:55

    If you have scraped etolls before election and fired JZ you would get 100%! Doesn't take genius to work that out!

  • Jean-Pierre Wolf - 2014-05-13 16:57

    More wasted tax money ........

  • Mzwandile Jola Dlamanzi - 2014-05-13 17:02

    E tolls, Marikana, Bekkerdal and Soccer city were the main factors i would expect from that report in that order chairperson.

  • Lunga Mntyuza - 2014-05-13 17:03

    In ur own words its a good story to tell people hv finally realize u ar corrupt n unfit 2 do the job of serving de public

  • Andrew Hodge - 2014-05-13 17:04

    Great way to start ..... mmmmm let us spend money on nothing ... YES!!!.. Proudly brought to you by the cANCer ...

  • Sean Potgieter - 2014-05-13 17:05

    What about the dumped ballots, or the poor woman who voted COPE who was beaten to death by the sub-human trash that votes ANC??? May the ANC burn in hell. You deserve to lose far more votes than you did you bloody savages.

  • George Michaelides - 2014-05-13 17:09

    PET , PEC ..ANC...sounds all the same to me..waste of taxpayers money...finnish and klaar...useless..

  • zaza - 2014-05-13 17:09

    Give it another five years and you guys are done. Make way for the DA and the EFF. Oh, and yes, lets waste more money. Its simple. You are losing, slowly.

  • Collins Ntelele - 2014-05-13 17:16

    It needs no rocket scientist to see what caused the drop....damn e-tolls,Nkandla,Guptagate.Why waste time with useless analysis.And,let warn you,continue not to listen to the people,you'll soon be reduced to small fries.

  • Craig Lowe - 2014-05-13 17:24

    Checking why the vote did not go as YOU expected is not the issue, try this, stop stealing, be transparent, deliver the services, stop putting your interests before the people, do a hard days work and understand who put you where you are, the people of this country are not idiots and are slowly but surely catching on to your selfish self importance attitudes !

  • Ganon Difference Nhubunga - 2014-05-13 17:34

    People did not go and vote, my Party, the ANC should not be blind about that. At Bushbuckridge people did not vote for EFF, DA, or any other party, BRA has its own history, they stayed at home. If people stayed at home then what? They indicated that they will do so, listen to their concerns, listen to their cries. I repeat, statics shows that EFF and DA did badly in Mpumalanga, so I offer my services for service delivery, 100% until the next Local Government elections. We are many who are willing to assist, but bad bad individuals at high places are making our llives difficult, can we start working now instead of towards elections, now, please, please,?

  • Chris Bester - 2014-05-13 17:37

    Start looking at your No 1!!

  • Craig Lowe - 2014-05-13 17:44

    Maybe the ANC should just spend some extra hours at no cost checking the comments on this forum, how blind must you be not to be able see why

  • philip.buys.1 - 2014-05-13 17:49

    Just read all these comments, and you will have a great in depth analysis. Add the report findings from Thuli the protector, into the equation, add etolls and subtract the joblosses, and you will have a perfect answer.

  • Pumeza Mahobe - 2014-05-13 17:58

    Could have been relevant if they held elections results and conducted this analysis specifically in that Province and KZN. DA, EFF and other minority parties did well in Gauteng and more than we were led to believe. Phew, I breathe a fresh sigh of relief for being a resident in the WC!

  • Hester Rectomy - 2014-05-13 17:58

    They want an in depth analysis into why their cadres were so poor at vote rigging.

  • Edward Radingoana - 2014-05-13 18:01

    The e-tolls and Nkandla compound would still cause major damage in the 2016 Municipal Elections heading to 2019 General Elections where ANC would be buried at Avalon.

  • Stephen AndKathy Whiteley - 2014-05-13 18:02

    They may find that the younger voter does not regard the ANC as the sole or even the decisive agent of liberation. Further that voters in general are voting on economic issues rather than for historical reasons. Or they may find no such thing, and blame the opposition. If the latter, the Party is finished. S

  • Lauren MacLeod - 2014-05-13 18:06

    Amazing, when the ANC want answers it must be done in a week. Will the PET "have enough time".

  • Truth.nnete - 2014-05-13 18:10

    Majority thinks the way to get to Anc is to burn libraries,but there are those of us who knows that our vote is our voice,so we decided to put an x next to the face of a white woman sorry comrade,decisions like the one of eTolls are very disappointing.We never thought goverment of the people will make that kind of decisions.

  • Kirsty Prinsloo - 2014-05-13 18:35

    Mlunge they did a study about low iq and narrow minded people being homophobic. I see you proving it right.

  • Henk Delport191 - 2014-05-13 18:46

    News 24 why delete my comment

  • Stephen AndKathy Whiteley - 2014-05-13 18:52

    They may decide on increasing crony-capitalism, in which case a few leading members of others of other parties will join them, at a cost of more votes countrywide. Or nationalising mining companies and farming, in which case the resulting increased unemployment and lower wages will lose votes in those sectors to EFF who claim it can run them better. Or assaulting corruption, in which case comrades will engage in an orgy of panic theft. It need not have come to this. In 2007 the Party was obsessed with winning Kwa-Zulu Natal. In 2012 it was stuck with the man who did it. S

  • Peter Mokoena - 2014-05-13 18:52

    E-Tolls, E-Tolls, blind loyalty, hence majority of voters in poorest of the provinces, have mandated them to continue receiving grants.., Let's face it. Limpopo, Mpumalanga, Free State, Eastern CApe. They will loose Gauteng next..

  • Jason Marriott - 2014-05-13 18:59

    Why they should try figure out how on earth they still did so well considering they corrupt not delivering and seriously not a party for the people any longer.

  • Daniel Mavhungu - 2014-05-13 19:12

    Simple. The ANC lacks the leadership quality that can match the level of thinking possesed by people in Gauteng and Western Cape.

  • Motho Moso - 2014-05-13 19:19


  • Stephen AndKathy Whiteley - 2014-05-13 19:32

    In 2019 EFF will be the official opposition in OFS, EP, Mpumulanga and NW. If ANC had not chosen Zuma to secure Natal, it would still have lost ground countrywide but could recover. Now it cannot recover. In that sense, IFP started the decline of ANC. S

  • Phill Sarefa - 2014-05-13 19:35

    Very simple. THEFT. Zuma stole our money and built Nkandla. So we voted with our heads!

  • Fanie Gerber - 2014-05-13 20:03

    Gauteng has a higher level of educated, informed people than at the previous election. These people realize what the anc are up to and will not stand for it.

  • Mxolisi Khambule - 2014-05-13 20:46

    Is this A way to try and Lower the Seats of the EFF??

  • Utopian Indigent - 2014-05-13 21:24

    Didn't the President indicate that opposition was laughable, as he chuckled when saying DA wasted a year on Nkandla and achieved zilch? Why the concern then?

  • Richard Nieckau - 2014-05-13 22:14

    ANC will be one for the history books, although they couldn't fill many pages.

  • Mlungu Diable Blanc - 2014-05-13 23:31

    ANC has eroded our african cultural value system by legalizing: homosexuality,abortion,pornography,alcohol, guns,prostitution and slavery wages. to please western investors

      Brian Craig - 2014-05-19 12:58

      You are a sad case Mlungu and deserve to exist in the dark ages!

    Johannesburg - The ANC in Gauteng has asked its provincial election team (PET) to do an in-depth analysis of the election results, as echoed by Public Enterprises Minister Malusi Gigaba at the weekend. Above comment of the ANC is the most stupid thing i have heard of. THe ANC know very well that his party is corrupt and not to speak of Nkandla and Zuma, they shot themselves in the foot long time ago. THere is the answer and much more! THe ones that vote for the other minority parties wants a free democratic ruling party with strong honest values, nobody wants a Communist Government - my goodness not that! All of us can see very clear thank you. Acording to the ANC wealth must only belong to the state - who do you think will give their vote to you. How stupid can one be. Why so much success in the white communities? Something they did right for sure, that is why there is so much jeliousy and the blackes can't understand that, it's because of the thinking and intelegence of the whites. Why don't you try it yourself, you might have some success as well.

  • Marina Smalberger - 2014-05-14 08:48

    Tshivhenga Ndou, good said! good service delivery is one of the main things. How nice to see that a lot of people can see this, i have a lot of respect for people that can use their brains. Excellent!

  • Marina Smalberger - 2014-05-14 08:50

    Our people see, they hear, they take note but they don't take in, because they don't think.

  • Marina Smalberger - 2014-05-14 08:56

    If it was not for the massas of blacks in this country the ANC would fall out of government for sure. We are able to care for small families, but big families will stay poor because the parents can't care for all of them with only one or 2 salaries. THat is why the poor depend on the government all the time. We must teach our people that you don't deserve anything if you don't work for it. The whites were taught that lessens over and over, most whites follow the values of their parents and achestors, they did not get things for free. Never!

  • Marina Smalberger - 2014-05-14 09:06

    The ANC government is leading because their people believed in them, but not anymore. THey did not prove themselves for the last 5 years, they looked at things like e-tol, higher petrol prices etc. I can name a lot more, but the poor service delivery is the main thing. The ruling party is there because of his voters, the ruling party can not put himself in that position. IT is we, the voters that wil decide who is best to rule this country, because it is our tax money they are wasting , they don't budget for the real important things, they don't listen to their people's needs. That is why they don't vote for you!

  • Marina Smalberger - 2014-05-14 09:53

    Another option is for ANC to give the Western Cape totaly over to the DA. Give the province for the whites so that they can live and rule under their own athority/covernment. The ANC government and ANC voters can have the rest of South Africa with all the other provinces. That way we will all live in piece, don't you think. Create your own and do your own thing, that way

  • Marina Smalberger - 2014-05-14 09:58

    DA received 33% in Gauteng, the ANC 53%. THis is a bad day for the ANC. Please for those who did not take note, this is the real score. The ones that said the DA did not do well, go do your homework again. THe DA did extremely well, excellent to my point of view. THe problem is that some people see with their eyes closed. THey don't want to believe this. THis is not about race, it is about the issues

  • Marina Smalberger - 2014-05-14 10:17

    That is why we have so much differences in this country. Too many people, too many cultures, too many races, tot many oppinions and racism. If the blacks don't agree with whites, give us our freedom so that we can rule ourselves and the ANC will be able to rule themselves. If we can't agree on some aspects then we must have our own province and own government to live as we prefer, which is based on strong values, no corruption, stability, less vilance, free of language, free to live as we want. I am not an item that belongs to the ANC government, i want to live free en do as i want. ANC and it's voters can do want they want, but as long as they don't bother with us. We don't stand for Communism, do you realize what this means. Google it on the Internet and think again.

  • Gabriella Parello - 2014-05-15 16:18

    well lets start, rubbish public transport, roads in terrible condition, setting up e-tolls with our public opinion, trying to get a secrecy bill passed so that news reporters are not alowed to "blow the whistle" on ANC coruption, lack of proper education, basically keeping the masses stupid. nklanla...... should i go on..... what an effing joke this government is!!!! there is no fixing what has happended to south africa, too little too late.
