The ruling African National Congress (ANC) has won South Africa's parliamentary elections with 57.5 percent of the vote, provisional results showed after votes were counted in all provinces.
Jessie Duarte, ANC deputy secretary-general, said the party will move swiftly to counter corruption and increase economic growth.
"We need to correct our mistakes," she said, adding that the election showed voters want an "ANC that is united and in its unity remains true to the values and principles on which it was founded."
The result will also renew pressure on Ramaphosa to decisively deal with cabinet ministers accused of corruption.
"The real test is whether such individuals will face prosecution," said Phephelaphi Dube, a constitutional expert.
The elections commission will formally announce the official results later on Saturday.
