Inkatha Freedom Party (IFP) president Prince Mangosuthu Buthelezi and the party's National Executive Committee (NEC) are set to brief media on their electoral performance which saw a significant increase in numbers. 

With more seats in the National Assembly and ousting the Democratic Alliance (DA) as the official opposition in the province, the KwaZulu-Natal based party is on a high.

The party leadership succession is poised to take center stage after Buthelezi announced he would not stand for re-election at their next national elective conference. 

After 100% of votes were counted over the weekend, the IFP celebrated the loudest after registering significant growth since the 2014 polls.

The DA, which managed 517 461 as opposition in 2014 ended with 500 051, while the IFP improved dramatically to 588 046 from 393 949 in 2014.

The African National Congress emerged with 1 951 027 (or 54.22%) votes, lower than 2014 when they garnered 2 530 827 ballots.
