Vote counting has passed the 90%  mark nationally, though only one province, the Northern Cape, has finished its official count and verification.

Out of 21 000 stations that have confirmed their ballot counts, the ANC leads with 41.03% of the national vote – a significant drop of 16% from 2019.

In the Northern Cape, the ANC won nearly 50% of the vote.

Despite the overall results, the ANC will remain the leading party in seven out of nine provinces. However, in provinces like Gauteng, they will need to form coalitions to achieve a governing majority.

MK Party is set to be the largest party in KwaZulu-Natal with 45.5%, while the DA will retain control of the Western Cape with just over 53%, with counting almost complete.
