Reading Time: 2 minutes

EFF Provincial Chairperson in the Northern Cape, Shadrack Tlhaole, has emphasised that the election results in the province should not be taken lightly.

As of midnight, with 99.7% of the results captured, the African National Congress (ANC) held over 49% of the votes, the Democratic Alliance (DA) had over 21%, the Economic Freedom Fighter (EFF) stood at over 12%, and the Patriotic Alliance (PA) had 8.8%.

Complete results were expected before midnight, but four voting districts in Tsantsabane and Gasegonyana were still outstanding.

Tlhaole says, “This is just a simple thing that became just a stress for everyone in the province. No one must take it lightly. We need to be honest to our people out there. But also I believe this is what is going to give our people service delivery.”

“No one will disrespect anyone, especially our people. I think this is a good byte to potholes, this is a good byte to water-shedding, this is a good bite to unfair employment that has been in the province. I believe what we have done as the EFF is appreciative, and we are happy that the EFF has grown,” Tlhaole added.
