By Herman Groenewald (MP), DA Constituency Leader, Rustenburg:
The Democratic Alliance has shown remarkable and extraordinary growth in the by-election held in Rustenburg, North West yesterday 20 January 2016.
The DA secured a landslide win at the polls with a majority of 89.57% in Ward 16, while the ANC only managed to claim 10.43% of the votes.
This DA win will see Cheryl Phillips installed as a new DA ward councillor in the Rustenburg Municipality.
These results are a clear sign that the DA continues to grow in key battleground municipalities and wards ahead of the 2016 elections.
The stage is set for Election 2016 where the DA will make significant inroads into the ANC’s support.
In November last year the DA won Ward 17 in Rustenburg with an 86.5% majority.
The DA thanks every single one of our supporters who contributed to our successful results.
