The article ‘ANC, DA certain BCM wards after poll’, (DD, 8 June) refers:
The results of this week’s by-elections in the Buffalo City Metro (BCM) and Ingquza Hill Local Municipality confirms that the DA is on a solid growth path.
The Democratic Alliance (DA) grew from 88% to 96.01% in the ward 18 by-election in BCM, and from 6.24% to 24.94% in ward 9 in Ingquza Hill.
These results show that the DA is set to increase its representation in the provincial legislature in 2019.
It also highlights the hunger that voters have for change. — Bobby Stevenson MPL, DA Eastern Cape deputy provincial leader.
