With 43.58% of the total valid votes, this means that the party won 39 ward seats and 54 PR seats. This is a total of 43.46% of the seats won.The ANC, with 41.66% of the total votes, have 89 seats, 68 of which are ward seats and 21 PR, equalling 41.59% of the seats in Tshwane.

This means both parties have not reached 50%.

The EFF, which has the potential to be a kingmaker in Tshwane should it go into a coalition with either party, has 41.66% of the total votes, which equals to 25 PR seats and 11.68% of the seats won.

The FF Plus has four PR seats, and the ACDP, Cope and the PAC had one PR seat each.

ANC spokesperson Zizi Kodwa did not want to comment as yet because he said the results on the IEC system were only provisional and might still change.

He was in deep conversation with EFF spokesperson Mbuyiseni Ndlozi at the EFF’s table at the national results centre.
