ANC loses seat, retains another in Mpumalanga municipal by-elections

11th January 2019 BY: African News Agency

The ruling African National Congress (ANC) has lost one seat to an independent candidate while retaining another in municipal ward by-elections in Mpumalanga this week, the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) said.

In a vote held in Dr JS Moroka municipality on Tuesday,  independent candidate Marks Ntuli was victorious with 50.11 percent of the votes cast. The seat was previously held by the ANC but its victory in a by-election last June was set aside by the Electoral Court.
