Beyond the metros: an election preview of mining and industrial towns, and a harbour
Much of the coverage of the 2021 local government elections focuses on the eight metros, but there is more to the poll
Much of the coverage of the 2021 local government elections rests on the eight metros. There are a number of municipalities in play in this election. This piece focuses on two municipalities, which are centred on mining activity, two of which are centred on two industrial towns which have been mired by service delivery challenges and a harbour town which was comfortably won by the DA in 2016, but is marginal in 2021.
