Politics and Government

The 54-page Politics and Government chapter of the 2013 South Africa Survey provides up-to-date analysis on South Africa’s political landscape. It details party representation at national, provincial, and local levels and provides audit performance data on all three tiers. A new section presents information on voter registration statistics as well as opinion polls on the 2014 national and provincial elections. The chapter also covers issues such as government performance, social cohesion, race relations, and international indices comparing South Africa’s performance on several democracy indicators with the rest of the world.
