Policy: It is a sharp decrease from the 58 percent the party of the late Nelson Mandela received in the previous election in 2019.

South Africa’s political parties are preparing for coalition talks, while the ruling African National Congress (ANC) party loses its outright majority for the first time in 30 years.

Forecasts from South Africa’s Council for Scientific and Industrial Research indicate that the ANC will get 40.5 percent of the vote when all are counted.

The election result will determine the composition of the new National Assembly, which will then elect the next president.
