Political Parties in South Africa

Do They Undermine or Underpin Democracy?

Also available in Deutsch

This new book provides recent insights into the health of South Africa´s political system and contributes to a deeper understanding of what underpins a viable democracy.

Political Parties and the party system that underpins South Africa’s democracy have the potential to build a cohesive and prosperous nation. But in the past few years the ANC’s dominance has strained the system and tested it and its institutions’ fortitude. There are deeper issues of accountability that often spurn the Constitution and there is also a clear need to foster meaningful public participation and transparency. This volume offers a different and detailed assessment of the health of South Africa’s political system.
