The African National Congres (ANC) is confident of victory in the Democratic Alliance (DA) controlled Western Cape. Former premier and the ANC’s Western Cape head of elections, Ebrahim Rasool, said early polls showed support for the ANC at 40% with just 12 days before the polls.
According to Rasool,
The DA is struggling to keep its head above 50%. I think the game plan in this election the ANC followed has produced the kind of results in the Western Cape we wanted. It involved thousands of volunteers every weekend going door to door in 40 local election areas.
DA provincial campaign spokesperson Daylin Mitchell admitted that it will be a tight race and urged DA voters to come in their numbers.
This will be a close race and every vote will count.We urge voters to unite behind the DA to keep the ANC and EFF out of the Western Cape.
Meanwhile, Rasool played down talk of a coalition saying the ANC would in the coming days drive a “powerful message” that will get them the votes come election day.
