ANC Leads in Ekurhuleni and Nelson Mandela Bay metro as more results are counted.

Meanwhile, The DA by 8 am today, had more than 60% of the vote in the hotly contested uMngeni Municipality in the uMgungundlovu District with the ANC, which had previously held the majority vote sitting at more than 25 % and the EFF at 3%.

Although 23 000 votes had been counted, with predictions of a low voter turnout, this was an early indicator of a swing in the running of the municipality.

According to the tally of results counted so far:

The ANC was sitting at 43.62% after an initial 38.87%.

The DA has dropped slightly, from 41.17% to 36.36%.

The EFF is in third place, with its support moving marginally from 6.31% to 6.86%.

ANC is trying to recapture the wards as the results collected so far show that the race is tight between the two prevailing parties in the country.
