– Congress of the People (CCC): 0.47% (10,204 votes)

Despite the significant votes counted, no party has secured seats yet, reflecting the proportional representation system’s complexity and the ongoing vote tally.

The election map highlights the ANC’s stronghold in various regions (marked in yellow), with notable support for the DA (blue) and EFF (red) in their respective strongholds. Other regions show a patchwork of support for smaller parties, indicating a highly competitive and fragmented electoral environment.

This election marks a crucial moment for South Africa as the country navigates through economic challenges and social issues. The ANC’s leading position demonstrates its enduring influence, while the DA and EFF’s substantial support reflects a desire for alternative governance among a significant portion of the electorate.
