Final election results on Saturday

2014-05-09 13:39
Pretoria - The final results of the fifth general elections will be announced on Saturday, the Electoral Commission of SA (IEC) said.

"With 97.96% of results captured, we are confident of being able to announce the official results tomorrow," IEC chairperson Pansy Tlakula told reporters at the national results centre on Friday.

"As we speak we are in the process of finalising the capture of the results in the last few remaining voting districts."

The final results were expected to be announced at 18:00 at the results centre on Saturday.

Just before lunch time on Friday, the IEC had finalised capturing results in four provinces - Mpumalanga, North West, Limpopo, and the Northern Cape, Tlakula said.

The five remaining provinces were almost complete.

The Eastern Cape was 99.8% complete, Free State 94.7%, Gauteng 98.2%, KwaZulu-Natal 98.2%, and the Western Cape 98.3%.

Tlakula said so far 17.69 million votes had been captured nationally and 17.12 million provincially.

"We are still awaiting the delivery of ballots from eight foreign missions for inclusion in the count for the international voting districts."
