Pretoria - ANC secretary general Gwede Mantashe says the party’s results in the national election are “inching up nicely”.

Speaking to News24 at the IEC’s national results operations centre in Pretoria, Mantashe said the ANC is watching the results very closely.

At the time, the giant screens showed the ANC had around 4 million votes in the national election, and was leading in all the provinces except the Western Cape.

Mantashe said the ANC wanted to win in all provinces. He had earlier said he was confident that the ANC would win a landslide, but was not sure exactly how large its majority would be.
