ANC needs Cosatu and SACP to survive, says Blade Nzimande

SACP leader Blade Nzimande has warned that there were a number of factors that led to low voter turnout. He said factors contributing to the decline in voter turnout include internal divisions within the ANC, factional conduct, and situations where alliance partners were marginalised.

The ANC has again claimed victory as the governing party in the country, but a decline in voter turnout and the ruling party’s support has seen voters turning to either opposition parties or not participating in voting due to a lack of confidence within the party.

The Electoral Commission of South Africa (IEC), will make the official announcement on the results this evening.

Nationally, 97% of the voting has been captured. In 2016, the ANC led the pack with 53.91%. Current figures show that the party has obtained 45.94%.

Nzimande said the SACP would conduct a detailed assessment of the results and develop the way forward. “Problems within our broad movement, such as internal divisions and counter-campaigning of the ANC, factional conduct, and situations where Alliance partners were marginalised, resulting in divided communities and a failure to provide quality services,” Nzimande said.
