Modimolle By Elections: DA retains ward with increased majority

Jacques Smalle MP

DA Limpopo Provincial Leader

The DA won the by-election held in Modimolle ward 8 yesterday. We retained the seat with an increased majority, increasing our share of the vote from 63% in 2011 to 65% yesterday.

The DA continues to grow in all communities across South Africa. The by-election results from across the country yesterday show a similar trend:  the DA retained all of its wards with increased majorities, and made inroads into the ANC support in every ANC ward we contested.

This victory comes shortly after we won our first rural ward in Makhado ward 5, Olifantshoek and Tiyane. We are  building support across the province in diverse communities.

I would like to thank the community of Modimolle who went out in their numbers to support the DA.

We will now work as hard as we possibly can to ensure that service delivery is  improved for all the people of Modimolle.
