Parteien kämpfen um die Macht in Südafrikas Parlamentswahl.

By Jordi Bou

May 29, 2024 - Der regierende African National Congress (ANC) könnte die parlamentarische Mehrheit verlieren, es wäre das erste Mal seit Nelson Mandela vor dreißig Jahren nch dem Ende der Apartheid an die Macht kam.

Considered the party that liberated South Africa from apartheid, the ANC has recently been shedding support, with polls predicting it could fall below 50 percent vote share for the first time.

Stubbornly high unemployment, which hit 32% last year, persistent economic inequalities, corruption allegations and frequent power cuts have reduced its popularity.

If it fails to win a majority, opposition parties could pool together to dethrone the ANC.

Parties vying for power include the main opposition Democratic Alliance (DA), the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) – the third largest party in parliament – and the the newly formed party boosted by the endorsement of former president Jacob Zuma.
