AFTER THE VOTE: POLITICS IN A CHANGING SOUTH AFRICA

South Africa goes to the polls on May 18th in one its most important elections to date. For the first time, voters are distinguishing between voting for political parties based on their emotional appeal and their actual performance in government.

For President Zuma, any potential loss of support will crucially affect the stability of his government going forward and his own chances of leading a second term in office. For the Democratic Alliance, this is a watershed election to attempt a breakthrough amongst black voters – a voting segment that has historically eluded the party.Can it capitalise on disaffection within the ANC or will it once again remain largely supported by SA’s minority groups? All these questions and more will be answered in Political Analyst Daniel Silke’s latest Keynote presentations dealing with the future of the country. His flagship “Zuma Into the Future” is constantly updated and will reflect the very fluid and dynamic state of our party politics following the May 18 vote. Don’ miss this insightful, analytical and entertaining account of the future of South Africa.
