"The ANC will get the most votes in Ekurhuleni yet will miss the mark concerning what they accomplished in 2016. In 2016 they got 49% of the votes, we are foreseeing that they will wind up with 40% of the votes.
"What has occurred in Ekurhuleni from the information we have seen is that they are failing to meet expectations in their fortifications like Tsakane, Duduza. The ANC has not had the option to get their electors out and they are losing their votes to the EFF," said political race expert Wayne Sussman.

Sussman anticipated hung committees where no single ideological group holds a greater part of the board seats.
"In 2016 the ANC went to the African Free Congress (AIC) and framed a basic alliance. This time it will be a lot harder for the ANC to shape an alliance, they must look for more than one party assuming they need to stay responsible for Ekurhuleni in the following five years.
"At the present time we can unhesitatingly foresee that the ANC needs more numbers to draw near to the altogether larger part and this is a huge improvement in Gauteng area," Sussman said.
He said whoever wins Ekurhuleni when they start the alliance exchanges, must find different accomplices and numerous gatherings to work with.
Sussman said this will be an awkward circumstance.
