Johannesburg - The ANC still maintains a strong lead as 40,3% of votes from across the country have been counted and declared.
South Africans should expect a long wait as results votes from Wednesday's general elections continue to trickle in at the national results centre.
The latest results place the ANC firmly in the lead nationally with 56,21% of the votes, while the DA sits at 24,17% and the EFF at 9,14%.
A number of the votes counted have been from relatively small and medium districts.
As the day progresses higher reporting numbers should be expected.
