Minister in the Presidency, Mondli Gungubele, says Cabinet is applauding South Africans who went to cast their vote in Monday’s local government elections.
This comes after concerns were raised about voter turnout with less than 50% of the 26 million registered voters participating in the election.
Cabinet also commends the Electoral Commission of South Africa for its work in ensuring free and fair elections.
The commission has announced that it will release the final result by 6pm today.
