This year’s elections have been exciting – to say the least. With complaints regarding removable ink, the double-voting saga, protests flaring up in different parts of the country and disgruntled small parties calling for a ‘re-run’ of the whole process, there’s been enough drama to fill the 8pm slot on SABC 1. 

Drama aside, with election results announced, the numbers can now speak for themselves:

This year South Africa experienced its lowest voter turnout since 1994 with only 66% of registered voters heading to the polls. Despite this, the ANC held on to the top spot, with the DA trailing behind and the EFF grabbing third position. 

In Gauteng, the ANC narrowly avoided a coalition discussion while the DA snagged a comfortable win in the Western Cape despite losing a small percentage of votes. The EFF on the other hand had a stellar performance, increasing its voter base in all nine provinces. 

And who can forget KZN, the hotly contested province where the missing ‘Zuma-factor’ may have cost the ANC more votes than expected. To shake things up, the IFP is back in action as the main opposition snagging 16.3% of the provincial vote. It’s safe to say the next 5 years will be a soapie worth watching.
