Pretoria - The ANC has scraped to victory in Gauteng, maintaining its position as the dominant party in the country's economic hub.
Counting currently stands at 99.8% with only a few voting districts remaining to be finalised.
The province was the last to have counting finalised, following shortly after KwaZulu-Natal.
Ahead of the elections, Gauteng was the most hotly contested province, with the ANC fighting to retain its majority while the opposition hoped the province would be governed by coalition.
The ANC received just 50.17% (2 158 199 votes), a decline from 53.59% in 2014.
