Swapo loses control of Walvis Bay Town Council

Opposition parties took away Swapo’s dominant position on the Walvis Bay Town Council, following Wednesday’s Regional Councils and Local Authority Election. Swapo has been dominating the Walvis Bay Town Council since 1994, but this privilege has been taken away thanks to the huge outcome of opposition voters.

The Independent Patriots for Change (IPC) took four seats, Swapo took three seats, the Joint Walvis Bay Residents Association took one seat, the Popular Democratic Movement one seat and the Landless People’s Movement one seat.
A coalition between the opposition parties will effective reduce Swapo’s influence over the council to that of an absolute minority.
