ANC says it's not worried

The African National Congress in Gauteng says it is not worried about losing the province in next year's elections.

"We are not worried about losing the province in the forthcoming election," ANC provincial secretary David Makhura, pictured, said.

He said the party was not worried about the report by the Sunday Times that the party could lose the province.

Makhura said the main concern the party had was that, although the number of voters normally increased during every election period, fewer people actually go to the polls.

He said the drive would be to increase the number of ANC supporters who actually go to the polls and vote.

"We are confident that we will continue to increase our majority," said Makhura.

The ANC, together with its alliance partners - the Congress of South African Trade Unions (Cosatu), the South African Communist Party (SACP) and the South African National Civics Organisation (Sanco ) - said they would go on a campaign to ensure that the ruling party won even a bigger majority in the province.

In a joint statement, the alliance partners said they would embark on an ID application campaign focusing on the youth and a special campaign in the month of August targeting women.

"We therefore call upon the youth and the people of South Africa to register in order to vote in the 2009 general elections," said the parties.

The parties also announced that they would work together to establish a provincial political school to train ANC cadres on a full-time basis.

"The political school will improve the existing programmes by the alliance on cadreship development.
