Pretoria - The African People's Convention was disappointed by its performance as the last remaining votes were counted on Friday.

“The leader board does not reflect what we set out to achieve,” said party leader Themba Godi.

“We are crossing fingers to get more votes and at least retain our seat in Parliament.”

The APC, a breakaway party of the Pan Africanist Congress, had garnered 29 174 votes just before 11am.

Godi said all provinces stuck to the script and set out to achieve more votes.

“I can't point fingers and accuse this or that province of letting the APC down. Comrades did the hard work but unfortunately we have fallen short.”

He said he hoped to have between 30 000 and 35 000 votes when counting had been completed.
