JOHANNESBURG — South Africa’s long-governing African National Congress party appeared headed for a victory in national elections, partial results showed on Thursday, though its support seemed to have dipped under the leadership of President Cyril Ramaphosa.
[Here are the latest results, on Friday.]
The party led with 57 percent of the vote on Thursday evening, with ballots for the national Parliament and provincial legislatures counted in about 65 percent of polling stations nationwide.
The government’s Council for Scientific and Industrial Research and some local news organizations projected that the A.N.C. would end up with less than 60 percent of the vote — a symbolically important threshold that the party has not failed to cross since coming to power in 1994 at the end of apartheid.

The party needs only a majority of seats in Parliament to remain in power and to give Mr. Ramaphosa a five-year presidential term.
But Mr. Ramaphosa’s allies had hoped for a decisive victory that would hand him a strong mandate to silence rivals and fulfill his pledge of rooting out corruption in the party and in government. In the last general election, in 2014, the A.N.C. won 62 percent of the vote under Jacob Zuma, the scandal-tainted leader that Mr. Ramaphosa ousted as South Africa’s president last year.
Mr. Ramaphosa’s allies had hoped that he would halt the decline of the A.N.C., whose share of the national vote peaked at 70 percent in 2004, but has been falling steadily since.
In the northern province of Gauteng, a key battleground, the race to control the legislature in was too close to call, with the A.N.C. getting just 51 percent with ballots tallied at about half of polling stations. If the party fails to win a majority, it could be forced to form a coalition to keep control of Gauteng, home to Johannesburg and Pretoria, the commercial and political capitals, and home to the nation’s largest concentration of black middle-class voters.
Nationwide, the incomplete results indicated voter turnout of 65 percent, down from 73 percent in 2014. Political analysts and party officials attributed the decline to several reason: increasing disillusionment with South Africa’s political system; apathy, especially among younger voters; and inclement weather on Election Day in many parts of the country.
Long, serpentine lines have been part of the landscape of recent elections in South Africa — where black citizens earned the right to vote only a generation ago. But lines at voting stations were visibly short in Gauteng on Wednesday. A radio journalist, covering the vote from a helicopter, asked, “Where are the voters?”
Lines were particularly short in black townships and other A.N.C. strongholds.
In Sharpeville, where anti-apartheid activists were massacred in 1960, Lazarus Mohapi, 51, said he had never seen such a small turnout at the school where he has voted in every election since 1994.
“It seems people are staying away because they are tired of the A.N.C.,” Mr. Mohapi said.
He had voted, reluctantly, for the A.N.C., he said, adding that he was disgusted by the party’s corruption.
“It wasn’t easy,” he said of the decision, “but I’m giving the A.N.C. one last chance.”

Though Mr. Ramaphosa served as deputy president under Mr. Zuma for nearly four years, he presented himself as an agent of change who would renew the party and the nation. In December 2017, he was narrowly elected president of the A.N.C. despite fierce opposition from Mr. Zuma.
Two months later, he forced Mr. Zuma out of office and promised a “new dawn” for South Africa. But the initial excitement over his presidency — called “Ramaphoria” — fizzled in the face of the profound challenges.
His pledge to revive a moribund economy yielded little. His efforts to reform government agencies and state-owned enterprises were eclipsed by mismanagement at the state utility, Eskom, which led to the country’s worst blackouts in years. And his rivals in the party — led by figures closely tied to the endemic corruption of the Zuma years — remained as powerful as ever.B:
