By 07:00 on Thursday, the DA had an early lead in the highly-contested Nelson Mandela Bay metro, followed by the ANC and EFF.
Almost all the voting stations in Nelson Mandela Bay were finished counting, IEC regional supervisor Crosby Bacela told News24.
“Around 90% to 95% have been counted. But only 33% have been successfully captured here,” he said.
They still had to capture around 67% of the results, he said, which would take a bit of time.
Voting stations that were still counting were in Summerstrand, Kuyga, Motherwell, Kwanobuhle, and Booysens Park, he said.
The live vote count showed the DA with 54.04% versus the ANC’s 35.86%.
