JOHANNESBURG - Gauteng Premier Nomvula Mokonyane says the African National Congress (ANC) is positive it will win the province in this year's general elections.

Mokonyane was on a door-to-door campaign in Soweto yesterday.

She says the ANC's election manifesto has demonstrated that the ruling party is determined to address poverty in this country.

"We have the National Development Plan, a plan that can move SA forward."

She called on South Africans to use this last voter registration weekend effectively, saying it's a right that stalwarts like former president Nelson Mandela fought for.

Voters will go to the polls on 7 May.

The 2014 polls will take place just 10 days after the 27 April anniversary of the 1994 elections.
