Mahikeng - The African National Congress (ANC) in North West needed to focus on delivering service to the people of the province, former premier Supra Mahumapelo said on Friday.
The most important task for "cadres of the movement" in North West, said Mahumapelo, had been to make sure the ANC won the province in Wednesday's national and provincial elections.
"Now that we have won, we are very happy, we are elated. We must now focus on the things we have to do to deliver services to our people," he told journalists at the North West election results operation centre in Mahikeng.
Mahumapelo said the ANC had to sit down and assess what had gone wrong with its voter support. Although the party received 61.87% of the provincial vote, it had dropped from the 67,39% it garnered in 2014.
It is now likely to shed three seats.
