'We were down but not out' - IFP shares its winning formula
The Inkatha Freedom Party's (IFP) national results are showing some kind of resurrection according to analysts.
By Friday afternoon the party had gathered 3.49 % of the vote with 542 150 ballots cast in their favour this week.
It has garnered 17% of the vote in KwaZulu- Natal as of Friday afternoon.
IFP spokesman Mkhuleko Hlengwa says coming from a difficult, past they have successfully inspired confidence with the electorate.
We had a splinter party, loss of municipalities and regained those in 2016 and we have been winning bi-elections. We have been modelling our campaign along bi-elections just for the trajectory.Mkhuleko Hlengwa, Spokesperson - IFP
I remember saying in 2014 that we are down but not out. We are grateful for this outcome and believe it is good for the future.Mkhuleko Hlengwa, Spokesperson - IFP
He says they had to go back to the basics of reorganising branches and constituencies.
We had a thorough audit of these branches which is part of the reason why conference was postponed.Mkhuleko Hlengwa, Spokesperson - IFP
Hlengwa says a combination of all its efforts has culminated into a result which arrests an electoral decline and is a good footing for the coming elections in 2021.
