Africa politics

The ANC won majority of the country's councils but this unexpected announcement surprised many.


The election compilation has finally concluded and the results are out. The ANC won a majority in 161 of the 213 municipalities, the DA in 13, and the IFP in 10. After no party received an outright majority in any municipality, a total of 66 municipalities will be led by coalition administrations.

In 66 municipalities, there was no clear winner. This trickled down to the metros, where only three of the eight had winners, with political parties receiving more than 50% of the vote. With 58.22% of the vote, the DA regained control of the City of Cape Town, down from 66.7 percent in the 2016 local government election. In two municipalities, Mangaung and Buffalo City, the ANC obtained an outright majority with 50.63 percent and 59.3 percent.See the source image
