General Elections countdown

11 March 2014, 18:30

General elections countdown time marks exactly 1 month and 28 days today but still, South Africa saw a stunt/move pulled by the ruling party’s President in his comments on other parties such as the Official opposition party (DA) and the other opposition party which is very new (EFF). He said and I quote “Any one who is normal knows that there is no other party which can win the elections if it’s not the ANC”. Taking into consideration some of what he said about the other parties shows that these parties are really working hard to ensure political competition. On Monday 10th 2014 Eyewitness news reported that the ANC’s spokesperson has slammed the DA’s continues use of words to boost their election campaign by using the name of the ruling party, This is followed by the DA’s move to write on billboards across Gauteng roads which display the Following phrase and I quote “Load shading” brought to you by the ANC”. In the opinion blog of the Politics Web Helen Zille voiced out her own opinion and said that the DA has a good story to tell in terms of the Western Cape government.

Cope president is however criticising the ANC about telling “The people”-(the voters) that he feels sorry for what the ANC did to the EFF president. He has gone all the way to defend this new party leader that he thinks that he was actually set up as a way of punishing him on his way out of the ANC.

Allow me to first stress out that all these parties are all campaigning.

Political campaigning now proves that the ANC feels the heat of the political competition and political race to the top. Their comments on the opposition parties sound infuriated and fuelled with anger on the success of these opposition parties in their elections manifestos.

The ANC is actually trying to say “Stop competing with us and let us rule until eternity” but that’s just one of the old tales of the likes of Hitler in the Nazi Germany in the olden days when he said he will rule until eternity.

I have an optimistic view of S.A politics and the outcomes of the general elections not in favour of any party but it is obviously not the ANC if I were to take such a political decision of saying which one do I think will and shall win.

As the countdown continues, questions may arise such as what will happen if the ANC looses the elections because their level of aggression towards their opposition in the campaign is a notion that there would be conflict.

Will there be conflict or peace after elections if ANC loose?
