The African National Congress (ANC) in the North West has taken the fight right to the door step of the Democratic Alliance (DA) ahead of the Tlokwe by-elections in Potchefstroom. The elections will be held in seven municipal wards in less than two weeks.
The ANC is campaigning in a DA stronghold which is part of ward 4 in the Potchefstroom suburb of Miederpark. Members of the party have been distributing pamphlets, talking to residents saying the ANC is the party of all South Africans.
Generally members of the ANC and their volunteers have been received positively by some of the community members who attentively listened to them.
The by-elections follow a Constitutional Court ruling which nullified the results of the 2013 elections due to irregularities. The court also ordered fresh by-elections. It is in this very ward, where the DA got 40% during December 2013 by elections, indicating that they were neck and neck in the ward.
