All eyes are on the Electoral Commission of South Africa (IEC) as South Africans eagerly await the outcome of the 2024 National and Provincial Elections.

The official results are expected to be announced at the commission’s Results Operations Centre in Midrand today evening.

Millions of eligible voters across the country made their mark at more than 23 000 polling stations in South Africa’s seventh democratic elections on Wednesday.

This followed two successful days of special votes, which saw South Africans who had registered for a special vote making their mark at 22 626 voting stations and during home visits across the country.

Voting abroad took place between 17 and 18 May 2024 in 111 South African missions across the world.

Observers, from both South Africa and other countries, have closely monitored the electoral process.

At a media briefing, the commission said the release of the official results on the fourth day after Election Day was to factor in the third ballot and to deal with the 50% additional work imposed by the third ballot. – SAnews.gov.za
