Local Elections results expected soon

The IEC says they anticipate that all voting results of the 2016 Local Government Elections will be known within the next few hours. Results from 21 791 voting districts out of 22 612 had been finalised and the outcome of the elections was known in all but 39 out of 257 councils being contested.

The results for the councils of City of Johannesburg, Tshwane, Ekurhuleni and City of Cape Town were yet to be finalised.

The IEC had received 49 objections which would be placed under consideration by the Commission.

The announcement of the final results will take place on Saturday (6 August 2016) from 18:00 to 19:00 at the National Results Operations Centre.
