JOHANNESBURG - The African National Congress (ANC) has confirmed it will be holding a special indaba to analyse the election results, to find out where its weaknesses are.
The party received just over 62 percent of the vote, a decrease from previous elections.

ANC election organiser Malusi Gigaba says it's time to assess the party's performance.
"We know where our shortcomings and mistakes were. We're now going to focus on those. But above all else, the ANC is a positive organisation."
Watch: Official election results announced
A number of political parties look set to spend the next few days deciding on whom to send to parliament after last week's election.
A number of smaller parties are also contemplating their futures, including the Congress of the People (Cope) which failed to feature prominently this time around.
Watch: Vote counting, protests and hats
Mamphela Ramphele's Agang South Africa (Agang SA) will be going to parliament but the party failed to secure significant support.
The Democratic Alliance (DA) will also have to rethink its next move after parliamentary leader Lindiwe Mazibuko announced that she is leaving to study at Harvard University in the United States.
DA leader Helen Zille however says she has no plans to go to parliament just yet, adding she needs to stay in her current position.
"I think that five years in government, to turn around the ship, to embed a new plan and a budget, to structure the government and deliver that plan, is a very short space of time."
