The ANC in the Eastern Cape has retained its majority, despite losing a seat in the provincial legislature.

The IEC announced on Saturday evening that the ANC was allocated 44 seats in the provincial elections, and the DA was declared the official opposition with 10 seats, while the EFF received five seats. In 2014, the DA also received 10 seats while the EFF only had two.

The UDM will have two seats, two less than 2014, while political newcomer, the African Transformation Movement and the Freedom Front Plus will each have one representative in the provincial legislature.
