According to the Independent Electoral Commission, there are 26 million 228 thousand 975 potential voters registered in the country.

According to the predictions of several consulting firms, the African National Congress (ANC) should obtain the support of the majority of voters, thus ratifying itself as the main political force in the nation.

The two main opposition parties are the Democratic Alliance (DA) and the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF).

Analyzing different scenarios, a pre-election poll commissioned by the media conglomerate Media24 to Victory Research shows that the ANC could expect around 55 percent of the total valid votes.

On its side, the DA would obtain an average of 21 percent, assessing different turnout scenarios.

For the EFF, that figure would stand at 12 percent.

Another survey, carried out jointly by the eNCA television channel and the international consulting firm Ipsos, showed that in today’s elections the ANC could obtain an average of 43.4 percent of favorable ballots, the DA 24.2 percent, and the EFF 14.8 percent.
