Market research firm Ipsos says their latest study shows that the ANC currently holds a 60% lead with the DA on 13% and EFF at 7 %.

The African National Congress (ANC) remains the top choice for South African voters ahead of next year's general election.

That's according to market research firm Ipsos' latest “Pulse of the People” study.

The study shows that the ruling party is holding close to a 60% majority among a randomly selected sample of over 3 000 South Africans.

Speaking to Clement Manyathela on The Midday Report, IPSOS research manager Antonia Squara also revealed how opposition parties are fairing.

The Democratic Alliance (DA) is sitting on 13% and the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) is on 7%.
