The Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) of South Africa on Friday announced that it had passed the 90% voting station capture mark, as South Africans eagerly wait to see if their respective political parties managed to secure seats in Parliament.

The IEC noted that the Northern Cape was the leading province in capturing results with all its 770 voting stations counted, followed by the Western Cape at 99.6%, North West at 99.4%, Mpumalanga at 99% and Eastern Cape at 97.59%.

The IEC said of the 13-million votes captured by 10:30 am, 453 265 were special votes and 179 511 were spoilt ballots.
