DA Western Cape leader Patricia De Lille was full of praise for the 2016 Municipal elections on Wednesday.

“It was so dignified,” said De Lille who arrived at the Western Cape results centre in Cape Town shortly after voting closed at 19:00.

Parties were tolerant to each other at the voting stations, and it was “lovely”.

“There were a few glitches here and there but I think in general it was well handled,” said De Lille.

She predicted an “outright majority” for the DA in the metro.

“I definitely know it is going to be more than 50%.”

If this is the case she will have another term as mayor of Cape Town.┬áDe Lille’s election campaign was marred by the recent death of her mother in Beaufort West.

In 2011 the DA got 61.5% of the votes, followed by the ANC, which fielded Xolani Sotashe as its mayoral candidate
