ANC takes Northern Cape

Pretoria – The Northern Cape is the first province to declare its final results in the 2014 national and provincial elections, with the ANC winning 64.4% of votes in the province.

According to IEC results, the ANC won 272 053 votes, while the DA won 100 916 votes, or 23.89% of the vote.

There were a total of 422 431 valid votes, with 6 106 votes in the province being spoilt, according to the IEC.

Even if the DA was to get all the remaining votes still to be counted, around 150 000, it still could not surpass the ANC.

In the 2009 election the ANC got 61% and Cope 15.9%.

The DA got 13%.

Mpumalanga and the Western Cape are set to be the next provinces to declare results, with over 90% of votes captured. Only just over a third of Gauteng’s votes have been captured.
