Voting starts countrywide

2014-05-07 07:18

Johannesburg - Polls opened across South Africa on Wednesday for the fifth democratic elections, with the ANC assured of victory but in danger of seeing its 66% majority shrink.

Voting began at 07:00 at the country's 22 264 polling stations and will end at 21:00.

Officials at voting stations visited by Sapa reporters said logistics were in place for a smooth poll.

About 25 million registered voters are electing 400 members of parliament as well as new legislatures for the country's nine provinces, with seats ranging from 80 in KwaZulu-Natal to just 30 in the Free State.

Indications were that the day also began quietly in hotly-contested provinces, such as Gauteng and the Northern Cape.
