Eish, we are in trouble; in peace
African National Congress remains dominate party over two decades after democratic transformation
Perhaps the most observed local elections in decades were held in the Republic of South Africa on August 3.
In final results of this poll the ruling African National Congress (ANC) gained 54 percent of the vote to the opposition party the Democratic Alliance (DA) 26 percent. In actual percentages the ANC won twice as many votes as the DA and many more times as the putative ultra-left Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF), which garnered approximately eight percent.
With 100% of results transmitted, the official breakdown from the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) is follows:
Africa National Congress (ANC)
Councils won = 175
Seats = 5,124
Votes = over 16 million (53.91% support)
Democratic Alliance (DA)
Councils won = 23
Seats = 1,729
Votes = over 8 million (26.89% support)
