DA Holds its Own in Election Results

Compare Guru
2016-08-04
The election results for South Africa’s 2016 municipal elections are bringing some surprising changes to the country’s major economic hubs.

As of Thursday, the Democratic Alliance was dominating the election results in 4 of the country's 6 major metros with 46.5 percent of the vote.

The ANC had 40.6 percent of the vote. In Johannesburg, the ruling party (ANC) trailed the main opposition (DA) with 41.1 percent versus 43.3 percent.

The DA also led the pack in the Nelson Mandela Bay municipality, which includes Port Elizabeth, with 55.9 percent compared with the ANC’s 34.7 percent. The DA looks set to increase its majority in Cape Town according to BizNews. 

The ANC may win 54 percent of the overall vote, but there is no denying, this is its worst showing since it swept to power under Nelson Mandela in 1994, according to Ipsos.

In the 2011 local elections, The ANC had a majority in Pretoria, Johannesburg and Nelson Mandela Bay, which looks unlikely this year.

With 27% of the votes counted around 4am on Thursday‚ the ANC was dominating the national map with 49.74% of the votes. The DA had won 34.16% of the votes and the Economic Freedom Fighters had taken 6.05% of the votes according to BizNews writer Alec Hogg.

However, the DA claimed its first outright victory over the African National Congress (ANC) as it took over Swellendam municipality in the Western Cape.

At 6am on Thursday, the ANC’s tally had been 52.54% against the DA’s 29.82% and the EFF’s 6.54%. In Gauteng, where 10% of votes had been counted by 6am, the DA led the ANC 45% to 40%, with the EFF holding 8.69% of the vote. Municipalelections2016
