Durban - The Electoral Commission said on Thursday that results from the eThekwini metro municipality were likely to be the last to be finalised in KwaZulu-Natal.

The province's chief electoral officer Mosery Mawethu told a media conference in Durban that by mid-morning counting of votes was still taking place at three Durban polling stations - Albert Park, Cato Crest and Winder Street.

All counting at the rest of the province's 4 746 polling stations and capturing of the results was underway.

He praised the IEC's 45 000 staff for their efforts during the election.

Five issues raised by political parties had been satisfactorily resolved, but Mawethu did not say what they were.

Incident

The final capturing of results was expected to be completed by midnight on Thursday.

Referring to an incident where an African National Congress supporter was shot dead outside a polling station in KwaDukuza on Wednesday night, he said the IEC had sent its condolences to the man's family.

"We are aware of the incident. No staff of the commission was affected or endangered," he said.

KwaZulu-Natal police spokesperson Thulani Zwane said the shooting had taken place outside the Lindelani voting station.
