Every vote and every seat we get is a victory for us.

Patricia de Lille, Founder - Good Party

I took a long time to recover from the abusive relationship and it still continues. I just want to move on now and concentrate on the positive things.

Patricia de Lille, Founder - Good Party

De Lille founded the Good Party four months ago, following her internal battle with the Democratic Alliance. She says the current victory prepares the party to start working hard for the 2021 elections.

We must make sure that change is felt by all the people in the Western Cape.

Patricia de Lille, Founder - Good Party

It is going to cause all of us to work together to ensure that we deal with the imbalances of the past and make sure that we prioritise the poor people of the province.

Patricia de Lille, Founder - Good Party

About the low voter turnout in the Western Cape, De Lille says young people need to be taught about the importance of voting.

The youth must take this opportunity to design their own future because they are going to take over from us and they are going to take the country forward.
