The results as to which political parties will claim the much contested City of Johannesburg and the City of Tshwane are too close to call, this according to a recent poll by Ipsos. The poll also showed that the IPF will become the “biggest of the small parties” in the city.
Speaking to SABC Digital News Director Public Affairs at Ipsos South Africa, Mari Harris says the much contested Metro of Nelson Mandela Bay which is currently under the leadership of the ANC is well to soon become a DA Metro as the polling suggests. With the UDM set to become the fourth biggest party in Nelson Mandela Bay.
The poll also suggests that the ANC will have comfortable wins in metros such as Buffalo City, Mangaung , Ekurhuleni and eThekwini however Harris suggests that party wont have it as easy going in the eThekwini metro, “There is something strange that there are people who are not happy with the ANC.”
Watch below as Harris puts her head on the block as to how the Elections will turn out.
