Mahikeng - New political parties are divided over the issue of voter confidence and their ability to garner significant support in their first bite at the general elections on Wednesday as they await the results.
The African Transformation Movement (ATM) said on Thursday that it did not think voters would support new parties.
"The electorate tend not to trust new parties, but we are happy with what is appearing on the scoreboard. This is a solid foundation to build the party on," ATM provincial spokesperson Kagiso Monyadiwa said.
He said they were confident the party would win a seat in other provincial legislatures although it might not win a seat in North West. He added that the party ran its election campaign with limited resources but that they was happy with its performance.
"We are going to identify the people who have voted for us. Our membership is not concentrated in a particular area or municipality instead they are scattered all over the province," he said.
