South Africa's Jacob Zuma Wins Resounding Victory in Elections

South Africa's African National Congress has won a commanding victory in general elections, partial results showed Friday, putting President Jacob Zuma on the path to another five-year term in office and extending the party's unbroken string of post-apartheid election victories.
With the results from 97% of all polling stations tabulated, the ruling party led with 62% of the vote, down slightly from the results of 2009 elections. The Democratic Alliance was winning 22% of the vote, gaining a few percentage points from the last election. The Economic Freedom Fighters, led by the expelled ANC member Julius Malema, garnered 6%.
