There is still a small chance that Agang SA could get one seat in Parliament as it's sitting on 43,000 votes.
It seems that the big hold up in these results is in Gauteng with only 66 percent of the vote being counted and that's probably because of the size of the metros.
These numbers could end up all coming in at once. Picture: EWN.
But for the moment it looks like the ruling party lost substantial support in the province from 64 percent in 2009 to just 53,3 now.
That number could still go up as the DA is on 31,6 and the EFF on 9,6 percent in Gauteng.
