    Zuma, a former deputy president, is expected to become the new president, but the ANC is in danger of losing the two-thirds majority in parliament it needs to change the constitution.

    The ANC's majority could also be reduced by the Democratic Alliance, another opposition party which hopes to capitalise on growing frustrations with poverty, crime and Aids.

    In total, 26 parties are competing, with more than 23 million people registered to vote.
