DA retains Johannesburg Ward 73 with increased support


The DA in Johannesburg has retained Ward 73 in yesterday’s by-election with an increased percentage of the votes.


The DA would like to congratulate Eleanor Huggett, the new ward councillor on a successfully run campaign.


This victory is a clear indication of the progress made by DA-led government in Johannesburg. Mayor Herman Mashaba’s commitment to provide quality services to all residents in the City is clear example of type of good governance voters have long been asking for.


While the ANC continues to lose support, this by-election is a sign of the power shift leading up to the 2019 general elections.


The results of the by-election are as follows:

DA: 84.39 % (3 644 votes)
ANC: 11.05 % (477 votes)
EFF: 4.52% (197 votes)
