2014 elections in the Northern Cape province

The results of the 2014 national elections in the Northern Cape province were the following:

PARTY 2014 RESULTS PTS CHANGE FROM 2009
ANC 63.88% 2.78%
DA 23.36% 10.28%
EFF 5.06% – – –
COPE 3.31% -12.63%
VF Plus 1.32% 0.12%

The ANC won again the elections in this province and it increases the votes by 2,78%. It was the province in which the party increased more it’s votes but it was not significant. The DA had a very strong election in the Northern Cape with a positive change of 10,28% in the votes, becoming now the second major party in this region. The EFF has 5,06% for it’s first elections in this region and the COPE was the major defeat of these elections with a negative decrease of -12,63% in the votes having only a fraction of the ones it had in 2009 elections. The VF Plus had a result of 1,32% with a positive increase of 0,12% in the votes.

The results of the 2014 provincial elections in the Sol Plaatje municipality, where it’s located Kimberley, were the following:

PARTY 2014 RESULTS PTS CHANGE FROM 2009
ANC 61.31% -0.61%
• DA 29.25% 12.92%
• EFF 4.76% – – –
COPE 1.92% -13.51%
• VF Plus 0.75% -0.34%

The ANC won the provincial election in Sol Plaatje municipality with a result of 61,31% and a negative change of -0,61%. The DA had a very good result with a positive change of 12,92%. The party increased the votation in almost every big city in the country and it is a bigger opositor to the ANC at every new election. The EFF get 4,76%, weak for a municipality with so many blacks, good in the Boer-Afrikaner perspective. The COPE had an enormous decrease even bigger than in the province which happened because the party don’t fulfill the expectations of the 2009 voters. The VF Plus had a votation of 0,75% and a negative change of -0,34% which is not positive but somehow normal because this municipality have few Boer-Afrikaners.

The results of the 2014 provincial elections in Orania community were the following:

PARTY 2014 RESULTS PTS CHANGE FROM 2009

• VF Plus 83.74% -6.49%
• DA 11.79% 4.76%
• ACDP 3.25% 2.47%
• EFF 0.81% – – –
• ANC 0.41% -0.37%

The VF Plus won again the elections, both the national and the provincial, in Orania. However in both cases it happen a significant decrease in the votes of the party. Maybe some of the Orania inhabitants feel that the vote in the VF Plus is not enough to change the course of South African situation. The DA had a positive change of 4,76% in the votes which is due to the helpful vote because some Boer-Afrikaners feel that vote in the DA is the best way to fight the ANC. The ACDP, an ultra-conservative religious party, also had a big increase in the votes of 2,47%. For us is worrying to see that even in the whites-only Orania the ANC and the EFF had a minority of votes. However we want to believe that this people vote in those parties to accelerate the revolutionary process and the attacks against whites to strong Orania and to make more possible a future Volkstaat. The number of votants also decreasea bit, of 231 in 2009 to 206 in 2014 which may be a sign of a lack of good proposals for the Orania inhabitants.
