ELECTION NEWS - The people of the Western Cape have placed their trust in the DA to govern the Western Cape with an outright majority.
"We are grateful to voters who came out in their thousands to vote on Wednesday, despite the rain and IEC difficulties, to give us a decisive mandate for the next five years. We thank you for placing your trust in the DA – we won’t take your vote for granted and will use it responsibly," DA Premier candidate Alan Winde said in a press statement.
"We will keep fighting for you, and will deliver on our promise to residents. We will keep growing the economy to deliver more jobs for our people. We will fight for a provincial police service, so that the Western Cape receives the police resources it deserves. And we will fight to run a provincial train service that works and runs on time.
"The Western Cape is already recognised as the best province in the country. Our job for the next five years is to make it even better. We will remain focused on speeding up delivery of basic services, and the best education and healthcare systems in the country," Winde said.
