The DA is humbled by the unprecedented level of support for the Democratic Alliance Student Organisation (DASO) at yesterday’s PE College SRC election.
DASO, contesting the election for the first time, has won 3 out of 4 seats at the iQhayiya Campus. This translates into a 75% victory, which is a massive triumph given the stranglehold that SASCO has had on the institution for over 7 years.
The victory for the DA at this campus is indicative of growing youth support for the DA in Nelson Mandela Bay, particularly amongst former SASCO/ANC supporters. The DA is set on winning Nelson Mandela Bay in this year’s election with the continued support of our young voters.
DASO’s growth at various tertiary institutions around the country, despite struggles for recognition, is truly humbling and encouraging.
Voters continue to reward DASO with increased support on campuses in South Africa as an acknowledgment of sound delivery and integrity. DASO’s commitment to caring for students and their issues has been confirmed by this election result.
DASO also secured 2 additional seats at the Russel Road and Dower Campuses.
Support is growing behind the DA’s campaign to win Nelson Mandela Bay in 2016, and this result at PE College bodes well for a 2016 victory for the DA in the Metro.
