ANC and DA meet in Camdeboo Local Municipality by-election

JANUARY 20, 2016

A municipal ward by-election will take place on Wednesday in Ward 5 of  the Camdeboo Local Municipality, pitting Izak Reid, of the African National Congress (ANC), against Glenda Christina Mackelina, who will be representing the Democratic Alliance (DA).

According to the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC), the ward was previously represented by the DA and became vacant as a result of the termination of the previous councillor’s membership from the party.

The voter turnout for this ward in the 2011 municipal elections was 51.66%.

Other by-elections will take place in the Free State, Gauteng, KwaZulu-Natal and North West.
