Anthony Benadie MPL
Provincial Leader – Mpumalanga
Yesterday, the DA won a decisive victory in the Emalahleni Ward 22 by-election, with a winning margin of over 66%, obtaining 448 votes over the 226 of the ANC. The by-election follows after the resignation of the ward councillor.
A DA victory was never a given, and this result once again shows that South Africans are increasingly turning to the DA for their service delivery needs, knowing that a vote for the DA is a vote for a better life.
The DA wishes to express its gratitude and appreciation to the residents of Ward 22 Emalahleni for voting, and congratulates Councillor Helene Griffiths on her election.
Helene and her fellow DA councillors in the local council will continue to serve the interests of residents with great dedication and commitment, and make Ward 22 a safer and happier place to live.
