Johannesburg - The African National Congress on Friday welcomed President Jacob Zuma's announcement of the national election date.

“As the ANC, we are particularly proud that the democracy that we fought so hard for, side by side with our people, continues to be strengthened and exercised through the holding of regular elections,” ANC spokesman Jackson Mthembu said.

Zuma announced on Friday that the fifth national general elections would be held on May 7.

Mthembu called on people who had not yet registered to vote in the general elections to register this weekend.

“The ANC implores particularly young people to come out in their numbers to define the type of future they want to see,” he said. - Sapa
