South African 2014 election results – where to look

On 7 May 2014, South Africa hosted its fifth general elections since the fall of apartheid, which is used to elect a new National Assembly and new provincial legislatures.

The ANC is expected to comfortably win the 2014 general elections – but the main question is whether the ANC will lose significant support.

In 2009 the ANC won 65.90% of the vote, with the DA in second place with 16.66% and Cope third with 7.42%.

This time around, the ANC is expected to lose some support to the DA and the newly formed EFF. Cope is also expected to lose significant support, despite its leader Terror Lekota’s promise that it will not happen.

Many South African websites are proving in-depth coverage of the 2014 elections, which include the election results. Here are some of the best resources available.
