ANC may lose the Port Elizabeth Metro (Nelson Mandela Bay)

Battle of the Bay – In The Paper – Mail & Guardian Online. The Mail and Guardian is reporting that the ANC may lose the major Eastern Cape metro – Nelson Mandela Bay. When my research team visited Nelson Mandela in 2009, we were unable to complete our survey of municipal councilors because of tense intra-party conflicts and suspicions of loyalty, and apparently that trend has persisted. It is very possible that we will see a DA-COPE coalition if the ANC fails to get a majority.
