SABC predicts fewer ANC seats

Johannesburg - According to the latest election predictions by the SABC, the ruling ANC could secure 262 seats in Parliament, slightly fewer than after the last general elections in 2009.

The early predictions, posted on elections.sabc.co.za, put the African National Congress's number of seats in the 400-seat National Assembly for the next five years at 262.

If accurate, it would mean the ruling party had secured two seats fewer than in the last elections.

The SABC predicted 88 seats for the opposition Democratic Alliance, which would be up from 67 in 2009, if accurate.

Julius Malema's new party the Economic Freedom Fighters would have 21 seats in the National Assembly, according to the SABC's predictions.

The Inkatha Freedom Party and National Freedom Party would have nine and six seats, while the remaining 14 seats would be shared among other smaller parties, the SABC predicted.

South Africans voted in provincial and national elections on Wednesday.

Final results were expected at the end of the week.
