The Democratic Alliance (DA) is the best… at spinning negative news into something positive… but I’m not letting them get away with it.
This is the DA’s first drop in 25 years. They’ll be licking their national wounds and contemplating the 4% dip in their stronghold, the Western Cape.
Nationally, the DA received less votes than in 2014, transferring a bunch of them to the Vryheidsfront Plus (VF+) that decided that ignoring equality wasn’t worth an attempt at more votes. And the DA’s Cape Town sins made some religious for the ACDP.
In Mpumalanga, the EFF more than doubled its votes, replacing the DA as the official opposition party in that province. The EFF dances to populism better.
In Gauteng, the crown jewel, the capitalist DA was without capital, unable to take on a weakened ANC.
It could’ve have been worse – it shows that people still vote according to bias rather than the anger they screamed online at the DA the past two years.
It’s possible that foreign, ‘liberally’ sponsored analysts are working overtime to make sense of it all… but it’s really simple, and I’ll charge the DA nothing – stand for belief, not for votes; and address internal corruption instead of pretending to be the anti-corruption party. It’s hypocrisy, finger-pointing, lies, a lack of transparency and a puppet leader that cost you the most. Simply put, you’ve been fucking shallow.
WESTERN CAPE 2019 ELECTION RESULTS
In the Western Cape, voter turnout dramatically dropped 6%, an amount that could’ve stopped the DA majority. It’s reasonable to conclude that many of those were disillusioned citizens unwilling to vote for the DA or against them. Let’s hope that disillusion doesn’t lead to apathy, and that they’ll have thumbs ready to be inked for the Local Elections in 2021. Issues nearer home, like rates and water management, are easier to identify with.
This is how the Western Cape voted nationally and provincially i.e. this isn’t the national result. The final figures still need to be audited.
|PARTY||NATIONAL 2019||PROVINCIAL 2019||PROVINCIAL 2014|
WESTERN CAPE PARLIAMENT SEATS
42 seats are allocated. Until the audit and insane proportional representation mathematics is undertaken, this table is incomplete.
|PARTY||2019 SEAT ALLOCATION||MY PREDICTION||2014 SEAT ALLOCATION|
My hope for two more seats to smaller parties never happened.
