Premier candidate Alan Winde said voters have demonstrated their support for the DA’s plan of action for the next five years.
Winde stressed, with the majority of the voting districts now counted, that the party remained optimistic it would win the province and were looking forward to the final results.
“It is clear that our message of increasing access to jobs, ensuring a working train service and delivering a provincial police services, has resonated positively with the people of this province.
“We have already seen a dramatic improvement in basic services, education and health care under a DA government. With the support of the residents of the Western Cape, we will build on our work so far and keep making progress together,” Winde said.
