ANC NORTH WEST STATEMENT ON THE OUTCOME OF THE 2014 GENERAL ELECTIONS
14/05/2014
Dakota Legoete

We have come to the end of a vibrant election campaign, through our provincial customised Setsokotsane campaign programme, were direct voter contact was central. The Setsokotsane programme was a forty days of non-stop revolutionary campaigning programme, which was never done in the province and in the country. The programme required, discipline, dedication, resoluteness, selflessness and the need to pull together (Saamtrek) at all times by all members of the ANC, our Alliance partners, Leagues, government and our masses.

The provincial voter turnout of 67.39% indicates the value attached by our people to our elections campaign, our Election Manifesto and to the right to vote and to the constitutional and democratic way to change or renew a government's mandate.

As the ANC together with our Alliance partners and our supporters, we have shunned all negative proclamations that the ANC is nearing its demise in our province, particularly in Madibeng. Once more, the North West citizens have defence their revolution jealously and renewed the ANC mandate to govern the province.

We congratulate the Independent Electoral Commission for once again delivering a good and efficient election. They always rise to our expectations and make our nation proud. Where there were glitches, they were attended to very quickly. We are very grateful and humbled by the decisive mandate we have received from millions of the people of our province.

They were attracted by our policies and the delivery of services in the past 20 years, as well as the track record of this movement in working to build a better South Africa since 1912. We do not take the mandate lightly, we know the responsibility that comes with it.

We also thank our people who voted for the ANC for the first time in this election and assure them that their vote is not misplaced. We thank ANC cadres, supporters and volunteers for their excellent work across the length and breadth of our province. This is your victory.

To the people of North West who did not vote for the ANC, we will form a government that takes care of your needs to the best of our ability. Working together we will make it a government for all.

The ANC will work to unite the province around a programme of action that will see an improvement in the delivery of services. He will strive to turn the climate in our province into a positive and relaxed one that makes people free to be creative and work hard to improve their lives and the economy of our province.

Now that the elections are over, we enter a new era of hope and progress. We enter a period where we bury mistrust, uncertainty, pain and tension, and begin a new chapter of harmony and collaboration. We cannot afford to dwell on the negatives.

We have gone through a difficult period over a few years; it is now time to put it all behind us. We must enter a period in which the province reclaims its position and image as a thriving province, which can overcome all its difficulties, and which we are able to put the province first above sectional and party political interests.

As the ANC, we will build on the huge mobilisation success of our election campaign. We will build on the excitement around the ANC brand and policies. We will strengthen the ANC to make it a ruling party that provides a clear direction to the government of the day, which will be implementing ANC policies.

The ANC victory is an endorsement of our policies and programmes. But more than that, it is a victory for our Constitution, which we will always uphold, promote and defend. We reiterate that the Constitution is not under threat from the ANC. It has never been.

Our resounding victory is a celebration for people from all walks of life who helped to shape our Manifesto which will now become government's programme of action for the next five years.

We thank women, youth, black professionals, minority groups, workers, artists and entertainers, traditional leaders, religious leaders and many sectors and individuals who made inputs into this Manifesto and our campaign.

There will be no surprises in the next administration's programme of action. The electorate has endorsed our call for an equitable, sustainable and inclusive growth path that will bring decent work and sustainable livelihoods.

We have scored a victory for a better education system, better health care, safer and secure communities, and rural development. We will make our province one that creates an enabling environment for women to develop, thrive and be successful.

We remain committed to every commitment during the election campaign. We remain resolute to improve the pace and quality of service delivery, the appointment of competent people to government, and that we will be tough on non-performance.

The incoming Provincial Executive Committee will be required to turn our provincial public service into an efficient, effective and very caring machinery that will respond effectively to the needs of our people.

We will maintain direct contact with the citizens. We will not be a government that is out of touch with its people. The forthcoming ANC lekgotla, scheduled soon, will turn the Manifesto into a programme of action which will have clear timeframes and deliverables.

This will then be communicated to the province in the State of the Province address scheduled.

We congratulate all opposition parties on a hard fought election campaign. Now, we must work together and unite our people.

We may disagree on how to take our province forward, but what unites us is the fact that this province belongs to all of us, black, white, coloured and Indian equally. We will need to work together on issues that are in the provincial interest, on which there is no need to compete or permanently bicker.

We will work with all parties in the Provincial Legislature to deepen the oversight role of the Legislature. Together we must promote and defend the integrity of our State Institutions, including the judiciary and law enforcement agencies, and the Chapter 9 institutions.

As we prepare for the transition into a new administration, our message to the North West citizens is that we will remain true to our undertaking to build a caring, inclusive, listening and responsive government. The North West province needs a government that fully understands what else needs to be done to reverse our apartheid past, building on the successes of the past 20 years.

The ANC, working together with all our people, will form such a government.

Working together, we will take South Africa forward.
