Pretoria - Mpumalanga was the second province where preliminary results were concluded on Thursday evening.

The African National Congress achieved a landslide victory in the province, as it did in the Northern Cape.

The traditional stronghold of the ruling party gave the ANC a commanding 78.33 percent victory with 1 045 409 out of the 1 336 259 total valid votes.

The Democratic Alliance came in a distant second with a 10.40 percent of the provincial vote, from 138 990 votes. The Economic Freedom Fighters got 83 589 votes, or 6.26 percent.
