The DA in North West says it is elated by the Ditsobotla by-election results released on Thursday, 15 December 2022. The DA obtained 14.93% of the vote, a growth from the 14.4% result during last year’s local government elections. We performed exceptionally well in Wards 6, 7, and 15, showing increased DA support.
DA North West Provincial Leader Leon Basson said the election of six DA Councillors sets the DA up to be at the centre of determining the future governance of this municipality. “The ANC’s performance yesterday dropped to just 39.82% of the vote. This by-election is a watershed moment in electoral politics and sets the pace to see the fall of the ANC below 50% nationally in 2024, ushering in a new era of a DA-led national government.”
Basson added that the DA’s project towards 2024 is to work hard to win over those voters, to the growing DA, where they can be assured of a powerful and successful challenge to the ANC.
“We would like to thank every resident that came out in the rain to vote DA yesterday. Together, we move forward towards rebuilding Ditsobotla, the North West, and in 2024, South Africa”.
