Media Statement


The African National Congress (ANC) would like to express its sincere appreciation to the diverse population of South Africa who took the time to either verify their registration status or register for the upcoming National and Provincial Elections. We firmly believe that the strength of our democracy lies in the active participation of its citizens, particularly through the act of voting. The ANC is both inspired and humbled by the immense support received by our dedicated activists, led by the comrade President Cyril Ramaphosa, in every corner of the nation.

Whether it was in the vibrant streets of Soweto or the serene landscapes of Kuruman, the historic Bo-Kaap or the culturally rich Thohoyandou, the bustling city of Bloemfontein or the close-knit community of Vingerkraal, the ANC witnessed an overwhelming display of support from South Africans across the country. This resounding affirmation from the people of South Africa serves as a testament to the fact that the ANC truly represents the aspirations and hopes of the nation it belongs to the people of South Africa.

We would also like to extend a special tribute to the dedicated volunteers of the ANC who tirelessly canvassed throughout South Africa, working diligently to defend our hard-fought freedom and advance a better life for all.

Their commitment and selfless efforts have played a crucial role in ensuring that every eligible citizen has the opportunity to exercise their democratic right. The ANC remains steadfast in its mission to serve the people of South Africa and will continue to work tirelessly to build a prosperous and inclusive nation for all.

The ANC recognises the crucial role that citizen participation and a transparent electoral process play in the success of the upcoming National and Provincial Elections. We wholeheartedly commend the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) for their unwavering dedication and professionalism in ensuring a fair and credible election.2

To all South Africans who have yet to verify their registration status or register, we strongly encourage you to take advantage of the convenient online registration process at registration/overview or simply SMS your ID number to 32810 for registration status and voting station details.

Remember, the deadline to register or update your voter registration is before the Proclamation Day prior to the election.

As we move forward towards the elections, the ANC is acutely aware of the challenges and responsibilities that lie ahead. We are committed to addressing the pressing issues facing our nation, such as unemployment, poverty, inequality, and corruption. We understand that the trust and support of the people must be earned through tangible actions and results. The ANC will continue to prioritise the needs of the people and work tirelessly to improve their lives.

The ANC also acknowledges the importance of unity and inclusivity in our diverse nation. We believe in the power of dialogue and collaboration to find common ground and build a stronger South Africa. We will continue to engage with all sectors of society, including civil society organisations, business leaders, and community groups, to ensure that the voices of all South Africans are heard and represented.

We ANC expresses its gratitude to the people of South Africa for their unwavering support and participation in the electoral process. We are inspired by the unity and solidarity displayed by our fellow citizens and remain committed to serving the nation with integrity and dedication. Together, we can defend our freedom and advance a better life for all.
