If the DA wins...
What if the DA won in all voting districts? People have been weighing in on the issue.
JOHANNESBURG - At around 11am, 54 percent of the voting districts were counted by the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) and the ANC had around 52.6 percent of the votes, the DA 29.05 percent and the EFF 7.15 percent.
As much as the ANC is in the lead, the DA looks like it might win big wards such as Tshwane, Johannesburg and Ekurhuleni.
With the DA seemingly neck and neck with the ANC, tweeps couldn't help but wonder what would happen if the opposition actually won.
Soon the hashtag #IfDAWins started trending.
There were mixed reactions - from funny, to salutations to the party and then mocking:
