The seating arrangements for the numbers game in the municipal councils

As the 2016 local government elections officially ended on Saturday night, many discussions turned to the ANC losing its 50% majority in key metros.

This leaves open the possibility of the DA going into coalitions with other parties to reach a majority and unseat the ANC.
