DA deny GOOD by eight votes in George

The ANC had a real chance of winning the ward as well.

It was clear that Draghoender would weaken the DA in the ward, and that if the ANC got its supporters to the poll and replicated its showing in the recent 2019 elections, it could have won the ward. Local party, Plaaslike Besorgde Inwoners (PBI), improved on their 2016 and their 2019 provincial ballot showing here by winning 11% of the vote in the ward on Wednesday night.

They were certainly not bit players in this by-election and will be encouraged by this result on the road to 2021 in George.
