On Saturday, the ruling party in South Africa lost its parliamentary majority as a result of historic elections that put the country on a new political path for the first time since the end of the apartheid regime.

With nearly 99% of the votes counted, the African National Congress (the ruling party) received just over 40% in the elections held on Wednesday, far less than the majority it has obtained since the famous all-race vote in 1994. Which ended apartheid and brought him to power during the era of Nelson Mandela.

The final results have not yet been officially announced by the Independent Electoral Commission that administered the elections.

The Electoral Commission said yesterday, Friday, that the election results are scheduled to appear by Sunday .

South Africans are eagerly waiting to know whether their country, which has the most advanced economy in Africa, “will witness a significant change or not.”

These elections are seen as "a direct referendum on the three-decade rule of the African National Congress, which liberated South Africa from apartheid in the famous all-race vote in 1994, but has seen a steady decline in popularity over the past 20 years." .
