ANC Dominates

The elections drew out most South African voters, with 19.7 million of the 22.7 million eligible voters participating. With an overwhelming 62.65 percent of the votes (the majority), the ANC won the elections. The party then voluntarily formed the Government of National Unity, which included the National Party and the Inkatha Freedom Party.
