Political analyst, Sandile Swana, says the 2019 South African National and Provincial elections are extremely competitive. Swana says compared to the last election, it is interesting to see other parties filling up stadiums. He says only the ANC did that previously.
South Africa’s 6th democratic general elections take place on Wednesday. Political parties have been busy with a schedule of manifestos, campaigning and rallies around the country, culminating over the weekend with the DA, which held their “We Can Win” rally in Soweto on Saturday.
On Sunday, ANC supporters attended the Siyanqoba rally at Ellis Park Stadium in Johannesburg, while the EFF gathered at the Orlando Stadium in Soweto for their Tshela Thupa Rally.
Speaking on Morning Live Swana says: “The political landscape is changing and the ANC can see that the Gauteng province is up in the air judging by the rallies.”
He says from 1994, “the ANC has fallen in Gauteng and nationally and the question is where are those voters?
“What will be interesting to see is who will get the ANC votes. Which party will benefit from the ANC’s loss of voters.”
