Policy: When 42.1 percent of the votes had been counted, the ANC was on 42.7 percent, reports the Reuters news agency.

The African National Congress (ANC) has been dominant in South African politics for the past 30 years and has had over 50 percent support since the end of the apartheid regime in 1994.

Early in the count, the ANC, which had been waiting, was far ahead, reports the news agency AP. If the party does not get a majority on its own, it will be the first time since apartheid that they have to enter a coalition and get the support of other parties to secure the re-election of President Cyril Ramaphosa.
