The Good Party says it seems they have won two seats in the National Assembly and one in the National Council of Provinces.
The party’s Secretary General Brett Herron says they are still awaiting confirmation with the final results expected to be announced later on Saturday.
With 99, 97% of votes captured, the party has received more than 70 000 votes nationally and nearly 62 000 votes in the Western Cape.
Herron says they are satisfied with the support they received during the elections, seeing that they only had four months to campaign.
“We had a very short campaign, where we had four months from the time we launched to election date to run a campaign that could compete with old parties that have been planning and preparing and fundraising for their campaign for at least two or three years. So we had a lot of catching up to do. It is really encouraging and exciting and we’re very grateful for the support.”
Good Party Leader Patricia de Lille says they will soon start preparing for the Local Government Elections in 2021.
De Lille says they are grateful for the support they’ve received during the National and Provincial Elections.
She says they hope to broaden their footprint even more over the next two years.
“We’ll be using this as a basis to continue building the next two years to prepare to participate in the Local Government Elections. The National Executive Council of the party will meet soon to put that strategy in place, but now we’ve got a mandate to go to parliament to represent the people that have voted for us.”
