Gauteng has been a hotly contested province with the ANC, DA and EFF gunning for it.
As things stand the opposition may be able to topple the ANC by forming a coalition government. But the picture will be clearer later in the day.
The DA looks set to retain its position as the second largest party in the country's economic hub.
ANC’s decline was further indication that President Cyril Ramaphosa’s popularity could have saved the party nationally with voters snubbing the ruling party provincially.
On Friday, the Sowetan reported that there was a trend which showed voters split their national and provincial votes in support of Ramaphosa.
ANC stood at 56,99% nationally with 80% of the voting districts counted.
