Results as at: 24/04/2009 07:21:50 AM100% counted, 25,551,312 total votes. The question has to be asked. How lucky do you feel?
How about by provinces? Is there any hope that opposition parties will gain a majority in Northern Cape? Or anywhere else?What about the two third ANC needs to reduce the power of the provinces by constitutional changes?Why on earth is it so easy to change your constitution, and so completely designed for the benefit of the black majority?Best wishes,Leifur
Hi Liefur.It is only in the western Cape where this could happen as the white and coulered population make up the numbers.And despite all the shortcomings of the ANC, the masses will only vote for them . Zimbabwe is a fine example where Mugabe still has the support of almost 50% of the starving population.
Hi LeiferThis result in the western cape also was only possible because the English , Afrikaans and Coloreds pulled together, put aside race and voted for the best party.
But what about northern Cape, according to wikipedia the people are 70% afrikaaner speaking (presumably whites and colored) and 30% not, so if the ANC has not done a very good job of governing that place, why weren´t opposition parties more succesful? If so COPE and DA could have made a Coalition government that would have made blacks more inclined to work with whites if the coalition would have been succesful.Another thing, why is it that every province is made up so it is absolutely sure that not one ethnic language is dominating it all? Looking at prominent languages of every province makes you always think why on earth is that area not part of next province where that is the main language?Best wishes,Leifur
