Metsimaholo was run by a DA and MCA – Metsimaholo Community Association – coalition following last year’s election in which the ANC won 19 seats, DA got 12 seats, the EFF eight, the MCA two, and the FF Plus one. The ANC seats were reduced to 18 after the resignation of the councillor.
The Independent Electoral Commission’s Charmaine Mabale says the two voting stations in the ward opened on time this morning and no incidents have been reported. “Eight political parties registered. Yesterday we had special votes. One 120 of 190 voters who registered for special votes cast their votes yesterday.” – Cathy Dlodlo
