South African general elections in North-West province

The results of the national elections in the North West province were the following:

PARTY 2014 RESULTS PTS CHANGE FROM 2009 

ANC 67.79% -6.05%

  •  DA 12.59% 3.89%
  •  EFF 12.53%  – – – 
  •  VF Plus 1.61% 0.17%
  •  UDM 0.96% 0.44%

The ANC won with a big margin the elections in this region but as in almost all the country the votation decreased in this case by -6,05% which is very significant. The DA get the second place with just 12,59% but with a positive change of 3,89% similar to what happen in other parts of the country. The EFF get the biggest result in this province, only 0,06% behind the DA. This is worrying in the Boer-Afrikaner perspective and shows that the EFF propaganda can be effective among poor blacks specially the younger generations. The VF Plus had it’s second best result in North West with a positive change of 0,17% probably because this region albeit don’t having many whites has many boers and those are who are suffering more with the racist blacks attacks.

The results of the provincial elections in the Rustenburg city were the following:

PARTY 2014 RESULTS PTS CHANGE FROM 2009

 ANC 56.57% -15.75%

  •  EFF 21.33%  – – – 
  •  DA 13.29% 2.45%
  •  UDM 3.45% 2.17%
  •  COPE 1.55% -6.29%
  •  VF Plus 1.14% -0.03%

The ANC won the provincial elections in Rustenburg but had a sharp decrease in the votes with a negative change of -15,75%. Part of those -15.75% ex-ANC votes went to the EFF that get an enormus result of 21,33%. Even considering the fact that in the Rustenburg suburbs live many poor blacks specially in the mining sector this is a really worrying result that should make us think about the danger of the EFF. The DA came in third with just 13,29% but as in almost all the country it had a positive change, in this case 2,45%. The center-left UDM get 3,45% of the votes with a positive change of 2,17%. The VF Plus was sixth with a negative decrease of  0,03% which is normal because the best result of the VF Plus was in rural areas and not in large cities.
