"Based on current trends, both the ANC and the DA are likely to end up with 40% to 45% of the vote," he said.

Just after 09:30, the IEC's results for the metro stood at 46.52% for the DA and 40.1% for the ANC. The EFF has 9.29% of the vote.

The EFF was looking to get 10% in the metro. This meant the EFF would have the power to decide which party to go into a coalition with.
