Cape Town - Results have slowly started trickling into the IEC provincial results centre in Cape Town.
As of midnight on May 8, there have been 24 votes counted - the ANC is leading the pack on the national ballot with 11 votes, followed by the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) with 8 votes and the Democratic Alliance (DA) with none.
“We are very confident but we are also cautious about the increment weather and technical challenges that was experienced throughout the IEC,” said Faiez Jacobs the ANC Western Cape Provincial Secretary.
"I think it's well noted that some voting stations opened late, there were problems with the ballot paper, and there were challenges around the forms that people had to use. If we had made adequate provision then they wouldn’t have had these technical problems.
"I think we are very concerned with it," Jacobs said.
