1:58 EFF claims foul play in Gauteng results

The Economic Freedom Fighters called on Thursday night for an audit of the elections and votes in Gauteng.

"There are many incidents of lost ballots and ballots found in bins across Gauteng, and it appears that the IEC is colluding with the ANC to prevent the reality that the ANC might go below 50% in Gauteng," EFF spokesperson Mbuyiseni Ndlozi said.
He said that during the counting of the voting results, the numbers for the ANC in Gauteng were dwindling.
"At exactly 17:59 the ANC was at 50.21% of the Gauteng vote and immediately after that, the Gauteng results started to slow down and almost came to an absolute halt because the ANC was heading towards below 50% of the Gauteng vote," Ndlozi said.
He said the party suspected foul play.
The EFF was demanding the immediate release of the Gauteng results by the Electoral Commission of SA (IEC). - Sapa

21:03 - President Jacob Zuma arrived at the IEC election results centre in Pretoria on Thursday evening.

He was flanked by ANC deputy president Cyril Ramaphosa, deputy secretary Jessie Duarte, Gauteng Premier Nomvula Mokonyane and his bodyguards while journalists scrambled around him.

ANC secretary general Gwede Mantashe explained to Zuma how the ruling party was performing in terms of votes received across the provinces.

"I can only report about the ANC, not about anything else," Mantashe said, resulting in Zuma laughing.

Zuma, wearing a yellow jacket, joked, laughed and shook hands with leaders of political parties.

Journalists waited for him to reach the Economic Freedom Fighters' desk, but he went the other way and proceeded to greet IEC chairperson Pansy Tlakula.

EFF commissar Floyd Shivambu laughed and asked journalists why they thought Zuma would pass by and greet EFF members. The party was formed by former ANC Youth League members. - Sapa

20:27 – Sapa reports - South Africa's fifth all-race election has seen the highest number of votes cast in the country's democratic history, the IEC said on Thursday.

"We remain on track to complete the count, capture and audit results for these elections in good time," chief electoral officer Mosotho Moepya told reporters at the IEC's results centre in Pretoria.

"We [also] remain on track to record the highest total number of votes cast for an election in SA's 20-year history of democracy."

He said 12.62 million votes had been captured on the result system by 18:00.

Over 18 million votes were expected to have been cast in this national election.

"This will exceed the 17.9 million votes cast in 2009 and the 15.5 million in 2004."

He said counting had been completed in the Northern Cape.

In the Western Cape 94% of votes had been counted, 83% in North West, 99% in Mpumalanga, 79% in KwaZulu-Natal, 43% in Gauteng, 79% in Limpopo, 64 % in the Free State, and 87 % in the Eastern Cape.

20:26 - Western Cape politicians waited for results from the final few voting stations in the province on Thursday night.

The DA was set to retain the province with a majority after more than 90% of the votes were captured by the IEC at the provincial results centre in Bellville-South.

DA deputy provincial leader Theuns Botha said the growth in DA votes was not unexpected.

"I think that if we end up eventually with a 10% growth it will be excellent," Botha said.

In 2009, the DA became the first party to win an outright majority in the province by garnering 51% of the vote.

By 20:00 the party had around 59% of the vote. - Sapa

19:13 - The ANC was heading for its fifth landslide election victory, but with a loss of about 3% of its majority and a handful of seats in Parliament, according to results released late on Thursday.

With reporting from districts more than three-quarters complete, the ruling party was standing at 62.8%, with the DA second with 22.2%, and Julius Malema's EFF third with 5.4%.

The figures confirmed pre-poll forecasts that voters would inflict relatively limited punishment on the ANC for the Nkandla scandal, sluggish service delivery and enduring economic hardship for most South Africans.

"I think the ANC will get above 60% and... I think they will also get above 50% in Gauteng," DA leader Helen Zille conceded in a television interview at the national results centre in Pretoria. - Sapa

"We continue to await an apology from the habitual pathological liars in the DA, who have been ordered by the court to retract some of their lies," spokesperson Bandile Masuku said in a statement.

The Electoral Court on Tuesday ordered the DA to retract and apologise for an SMS it sent to over 1.5 million voters in Gauteng, claiming President Jacob Zuma stole taxpayers' money for the R246m security upgrades to his Nkandla home. - Sapa

18:07 - The Eastern Cape provincial elections were credible, provincial electoral officer Thami Mraji said on Thursday. "In my opinion, the national and provincial elections of 2014 have been credible, free, and fair in spite of the many challenges that were encountered," he said in a statement.

Problems reported on Wednesday had been resolved. These included national ballot papers that could not be scanned as they did not have barcodes. - Sapa

18:06 - Sapa reports: The ANC had a healthy lead in Gauteng with 53.89% of votes counted so far by Thursday afternoon.

The party had 727 241 votes in the province compared to the DA's 435 926, which gave the opposition 32.30% of the ballot in Gauteng.

By 17:30 the EFF had 8.36% or 112 801 votes.

There were six million registered voters in Gauteng.

17:54 - 

17:51 - The DA appeared set to retain the Western Cape after 90% of votes cast were captured on Thursday.

Early indications were that the party was set to increase its support.

The DA had taken just over a million of the votes captured so far - an almost 60% share of the ballots, compared to 51% in 2009.

The ANC attracted just under 33% of voters in the province.

It was unclear whether the numbers would change much, with the results from only 119 voting districts still outstanding.

New kids on the block, the Economic Freedom Fighters, caused an upset for other smaller parties, garnering two percent of the Western Cape vote so far. –Sapa

Julius Malema's militant EFF was third with 4.9% of the vote - predictably proving itself the upstart success of the elections.

16:24 - Pretoria - Police Minister Nathi Mthethwa has expressed his satisfaction with the safety of the 2014 elections.

Hotspot areas were identified and targeted ahead of time, and “our work paid off”, he told News24 at the IEC’s national results operations centre in Pretoria on Thursday.

Police officials launched operations aimed at preventing violence and intimidation in these areas.

“All hotspot areas went very well and turnout was good,” he said.

This came as IEC chairperson Pansy Tlakula confirmed on Thursday that there were two shooting incidents reported in the vicinity of voting stations in KwaZulu-Natal on Wednesday. Two people were also arrested for attacking a voting station in Tzaneen.

However, Mthethwa said it later emerged that one death in KwaZulu-Natal was related to a taxi feud and was not related to the elections.

16:21 - The DA is leading in the City of Johannesburg with 48.45% of the provincial vote. The ANC is in second place with 39.83% of the vote.

16:18 - The number of votes the Pan Africanist Congress of Azania (PAC) has secured in the latest national election is an embarrassment, the party said on Thursday.

"We were not expecting this, this was not the plan. It is an embarrassment to us," general secretary Narius Moloto said.

He said the party had a membership of 65 000.

"If things stay this way, we are posed to retain one seat in Parliament."

The PAC had collected 20 400 of the counted ballots by 15:30 on Thursday.

He said the PAC was self-funded and contested the election with well-funded parties like the ANC and the DA.

"They spend billions on billboards and can reach every corner of the country."

He said the PAC was transforming itself and needed to take stock of the election in a positive way to plan its strategies. - Sapa

"We must shy away from politics of personalities, insults, and concentrate on politics of policies," party secretary Kenny Kunene told Sapa at the IEC national results centre in Pretoria on Thursday.

"Some people base their votes on anger."

Kunene said it was vital for young people to get involved in politics and contribute to shaping the country.

He was happy with his party's progress in the election as the plan was never to actively contest, but rather to test the water.

By 11:30 just over 7.55 million votes had been counted – out of 25.39 million registered voters. This is less than 30% of the total possible votes.

“In those voting districts which have been counted, captured and audited, we have recorded an average voter turnout of just over 72.61%. We are hoping this will grow further as the voting districts from large urban, metro areas are captured.”

Currently, the DA has over 960 000 votes in the province, while the ANC has just over 520 000.

ANC deputy secretary general Jessie Duarte told News24 at the IEC national results operations centre in Pretoria that the possibility of entering into a coalition “has not been discussed”.

ANC national spokesperson Jackson Mthembu reiterated what Duarte said, saying “there are no coalition talks yet”.

However, he added that the ANC’s strongholds are mostly in rural areas in the Western Cape, and many of those results are not yet in.

“We are keeping our options open,” he said.

15:01 - Sapa reports: Preliminary election results show the DA maintaining its Western Cape stronghold, while racing neck and neck with the ANC for the city of Tshwane.

By midday on Thursday, the Electoral Commission of SA (IEC) in the Western Cape had captured over half of the votes cast.

"We have already counted 1.6 million people and that is a count out of 2.94 million [registered] people..." provincial electoral officer Courtney Sampson said.

By noon the Democratic Alliance had obtained just under 60 percent of the vote in the Western Cape. This compared to just over 50% in 2009.

The African National Congress had around 33% of the vote in the Western Cape, followed by the Economic Freedom Fighters with more than 2%.

The African Christian Democratic Party and Freedom Front Plus stood at a little over 1% each in the province.

The Congress of the People dropped to under 1% in the Western Cape.

DA parliamentary leader Lindiwe Mazibuko said the party was growing and making inroads in the Western Cape.

Mazibuko was excited about the lead the party had in the province, the only province not governed by the ANC.

The DA had surpassed its 2009 numbers with only half of this year's votes counted so far.

"We are very upbeat and we are growing significantly in this election," Mazibuko said.

She predicted the DA would do well in Gauteng once all the stations had submitted their results.

"We will do very well once the results for Tshwane and Johannesburg are received. We had a very good premier candidate in Mmusi Maimane," she said.

Gauteng numbers for the ANC and the DA were fairly even in the City of Tshwane.

Out of the 35 719 votes counted, the ANC secured 15,765 with 14 659 votes for the DA.

The FF Plus was a distant third in Tshwane with 6.29% of the vote (2 248), while the EFF garnered 1 881.

By midday on Thursday, the ANC was leading nationally in the election race with over four million votes. This was over 62% of the counted votes.

The DA secured 1.7m votes (23.01%).

Julius Malema's EFF was in third position with 362 063 votes (4.73%).

Meanwhile, the IEC said results from the eThekwini metro municipality were likely to be the last to be finalised in KwaZulu-Natal.

In Durban, the province's chief electoral officer Mosery Mawethu said counting of votes was continuing at three Durban polling stations by mid-morning.

All counting at the rest of the province's 4746 polling stations and capturing of the results was under way.
