ANC takes an early lead as results continue to flock in.
The African National Congress is currently leading with 55% of the 27% votes counted. The ruling party is being followed by the Democratic Alliance which has 25.97%.
The third opposition party Economic Freedom Fighters has polled 8.28% so far. It is highly expected that ANC will post just above 50% and EFF will get about 12%. Opposition leader Nelson Chamisa has commended South Africa’s Independent Electoral Commission for conducting a transparent election.
Unlike with ZEC in Zim, the IEC of RSA results center is fully transparent.The management system works & each party has direct access to the portal receiving results from the polling stations.This works & no V11s are alterable.We demanded but were denied access to the server.
