Only at: ANC early leads, while FF + grows in support
Good morning, News24 readers! We live from the IEC National Center in Pretoria, where we will inform you about the latest election results in the next 48 hours.
In addition to the official IEC results, News24 will also project the day-to-day project based on our statistical model that includes historical voting patterns, turnout numbers and live results.
At 06:00 on Thursday morning, with 9%, or 1.6 million, national ballot papers were counted, ANC led with 53%, followed by YES to 27.8% and EFF to 7.62%. FF + makes a strong showing with 3.79% of national elections.
It's still early days, especially in provinces like Eastern Cape and Kwazulu-Natal, where very few results are published. The current national figures are mainly guided by the results of the western and northern Cape.
