The African National Congress (ANC) strolled toward victory in South Africa's election on Friday, May 10th, partial results showed, though the party is on course for its worst performance in a national poll in its 25 years in government. Reuters reported.

As of 2211 GMT, ballots in 69.98 percent of 22,925 voting districts had been counted. The tallies put the ANC on 56.61 percent in the parliamentary race, with the main opposition Democratic Alliance (DA) on nearly 23 percent and the leftist Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) on nearly 10 percent.
