2014 National Elections (South Africa)

13 February 2014, 13:27

The fifth national elections since the end of apartheid era in 1994 will be held on 07th May 2014. This year’s elections become one of the most anticipated elections since 1994. The road to 2014 elections has been led by birth of new parties such as Agang SA led by Dr Mamphela Ramphele and Economic Freedom Fighters led by Julias Malema.

This is a very interesting year for countries democracy and politics in South Africa as the ruling party, African National Congress faces a more formidable challenge that it has never faced before. Political analysts still predict victory for ANC but it is not clear by what percent.

Democratic Alliance is still predicted to keep Western Cape, with possibly of snatching Gauteng which automatically becomes doubtful to ANC due to introduction of E-tolls in the province. EFF is predicted a guaranteed claim of Limpopo province, while it is also predicted to stand chance of doing well in Gauteng.  Little has said about parties like Agang, patriotic alliance, COPE, which by predictions face the defeat in national polls.

National Freedom Party led by IFP defector Zanele kaMagwaza-Msibi, is predicated to gain more grip in Kwazulu Natal with IFP and ANC slowly losing support. Bantu Holomisa’s UDM possibility of returning to parliament remains unlikely, but could still win some seats in the provincial legislature in Eastern Cape.

The future for parties, like PAC, APC ACDP and IFP remains unclear as even analyst haven’t said much about these parties.

Only time shall tell if ANC will add more seats in parliament, or the national assembly will welcome newcomer like EFF. At the end of the day is up to the voters to decide who should represent them in parliament, more to follow as it unfolds.
