Johannesburg - David Makhura has been re-elected as Gauteng Premier.
Makhura got the most votes during the Gauteng legislature's swearing-in ceremony on Wednesday.
The DA's Solly Msimanga had been nominated to stand against Makhura but lost out receiving only 32 votes while Makhura received 38 votes.
Makhura's re-election came as the ANC held onto Gauteng with a reduced majority following provincial and national elections on May 8.
The Gauteng legislature is expected to be closely watched as the ANC holds one seat difference from the opposition.
