'Any' or 'a': Which one should I use in the context?

The Nationalist Party has won 25 seats so far. No other party has been able to win a/any seat after several rounds of counting.

Either "a" or "any" is possible but after "any" you would need "seats​".

Really, only "a" is possible in the sentence as written. You have to change seat to seats​ if you want to use "any".
