As the battle for Gauteng continues, the Freedom Front Plus (FF Plus) continues to make some serious inroads into the province and have already more than doubled their support with 55. 7 % of voting districts declared.
The African National Congress (ANC), Democratic Alliance (DA) and the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) are still in the top three positions in the hotly contested province.
Of the 2771 total number of voting districts in Gauteng, about 1545 of them have already being declared.
There are still more than 1200 voting districts that still need to be declared.
Senior official of the Gauteng Electoral Commission, Thabo Masemula, says votes needs to be verified first before they can be declared.
“And after verification we capture and the auditors also audit our results. As a province we hope to conclude and collate our results by end of the day on Friday afternoon,” says Masemula.
A large chunk of the outstanding results are the ones from the Cities of Tshwane, Johannesburg, Emfuleni in the Vaal and Midvaal in the south of Johannesburg.
