Cape Town - Western Cape ANC chairperson Marius Fransman believes the party can regain control of the province in 2014, it was reported on Monday.

He told the Cape Times that the party could achieve this goal by reaching out to coloured people scarred by apartheid and recognising how blacks had been alienated in the province.

The party would also take the lead in placing the Khoi and San's need for land before the provincial government, he said.

Closer relations would be forged with Muslims.

"We recognise that there are at least 1.3 million Muslims. It is very important to have a strong relationship, not for their voting, but because they were part of the fight for liberation."

The provincial executive highlighted key focus areas including limited services in poor areas, a high incidence of foetal alcohol syndrome and unacceptable school drop-out rates.

Fransman was speaking after the provincial general council at the weekend.
