The Freedom Front Plus (FF+) is the third most searched for party in the last 24 hours, the latest Google search data reveals.

The FF+ received a lot of interest from the public after it achieved 2.3% of the national vote at the time of writing — up from 0.8% in 2014.

According to Google, party searches were dominated by the ANC followed by the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF). Black First Land First, which has so far attained 16 136 (0.1%) votes, is the fourth most googled party.

South Africans are asking questions such as: “How many votes for a seat in parliament”, “Who is leading the elections” as well as “How many seats does the EFF have in parliament”.
