With most polling stations having opened on time across the country and no major disruptions reported, the DA is pleased with how the election process has unfolded this morning.
Early indications are that there is an overwhelming turnout in DA strongholds. This is testament to the confidence that voters have in the DA’s proven track record of delivery and getting things done.
While there have been reports of long queues in some voting stations, we encourage voters to remain in the queue until they have cast their vote. Every vote counts if South Africans are to kick the ANC out of municipalities and usher in service delivery oriented DA administrations.
The choice for this election is simple. Voters can either choose to remain under the corrupt and failing ANC or they can vote for the DA for reliable service delivery and clean governance.
DA Federal Leader, accompanied by his family, successfully cast his vote in Durban North. He emphasised the DA’s commitment to action the principles of good governance contained in our manifesto.
DA mayoral candidates Geordin Hill-Lewis, Mpho Phalatse, Randall Williams and Tyrone Gray cast their votes in their respective municipalities without incident. This is the DA team that is ready to bring an end to decades of ANC impunity, deliver change and usher in better service delivery.
To be part of this historic moment for our country, every voter should play their part and join the blue wave. Only the DA is big enough and has the capacity to the ANC authored death spiral in municipalities.
