ANC takes Joburg, but gets below 50%

Pretoria- The ANC garnered the most votes in Johannesburg, but still fell short of a 50% majority, meaning the metro would have be run through a coalition. 

The metro was the last to be counted, and the release of the city's results officially brought the 2016 local government elections to a close on Saturday night. 

According to the IEC elections dashboard at the results centre in Pretoria, the ANC had 44.55%, the DA 38.37% and the EFF 11.09% of the votes. 

Elections Results Map: Johannesburg

The ANC won 121 seats: 84 ward and 37 proportional representation; the DA got 104 seats: 51 ward and 53 PR seats. 

The EFF got 30 PR seats, the IFP got 5 PR seats, the AIC 4 PR seats, while the FF Plus, Aljama, UDM, ACPD, Cope and the PA got one PR seat each. 

Much like the other Gauteng metros, Tshwane and Ekurhuleni, the council was hung, as no single party achieved more than 50%.
