The African National Congress, ANC and Democratic Alliance
The ANC won the elections in South Africa after 1994 general elections and Comrade Nelson Mandela became the first president of the democratic South Africa, deputised by Thabo Mbeki. After those 1994 elections the ANC won the majority but failed to get two thirds majority in the National Assembly because of various issues:
· People who did not were denied right to vote before had no idea of how to vote for their preferred organization.
· People in Transkei and other former homelands did not vote because many of them did not have the Identity Books
· People of South Africa were denied their right to vote and some of them were scared of the war.
· Many disadvantaged people were being under threat of those that were benefiting from the apartheid government.
Now what is happening in the Western Cape is that, the ANC won the province after 1999 and 2004 general elections and Thabo Mbeki became the first president to win all provinces and deliver two thirds majorities in the National Assembly. The ANC is not weak but the members of the organization are the ones that are failing the party
