1020 TOWARDS THE 2019 ELECTIONS: PROSPECTS FOR POLITICAL ALIGNMENT
Ralph Mathekga, political analyst and researcher
This two-lecture course will focus on the outcomes of the ANC elective conference with the aim of assessing how they will affect political realignment in the 2019 elections. The results of the elective conference will give an indication of the policy direction that South Africa is likely to follow. Campaigns for the 2019 elections will be intensified throughout 2018. It is therefore important to assess strategies by the opposition parties, particularly with regard to how they are likely to coalesce as they contest elections.
