Last-minute push to sway voters in Bay by-elections

POLITICAL parties in Nelson Mandela Bay are in a last-minute dash to woo voters ahead of tomorrow’s by-elections in Port Elizabeth’s wards 1 and 56.

The majority of the candidates were hard at work in doorto-door campaigns yesterday and will wrap up their final push for votes today.

The ANC, DA, UDM and independent candidate – former DA councillor Stanford Slabbert – will battle it out for control of Ward 1, and the ANC, UDM and COPE are contesting Ward 56.

The by-elections in the Bay are among nine being held across the country tomorrow.
