Results from South Africa's fiercely contested local elections could deliver a setback to the African National Congress (ANC), with early indications Thursday showing the party that ended apartheid losing support.The ANC has won more than 60 percent of the vote at every election since the country's first multi-racial vote in 1994 when Nelson Mandela was sworn in as president.With about half of the vote counted, the ANC had 52 percent support nationwide, with the DA on 30 percent and the radical leftist Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) on seven percent, according to official results.Both the ANC and DA may be forced to court smaller parties and independent candidates to cobble together outright municipal majorities.
