JOHANNESBURG. – The African National Congress (ANC) remains the top choice for South African voters ahead of next year’s general election.
That’s according to market research firm Ipsos’ latest “Pulse of the People” study.
The study shows that the ruling party is holding close to a 60 percent majority among a randomly selected sample of over 3 000 South Africans.
Speaking to Clement Manyathela on The Midday Report, IPSOS research manager Antonia Squara also revealed how opposition parties are fairing.
The Democratic Alliance (DA) is sitting on 13 percent and the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) is on 7 percent.
She adds that the DA’s support has dropped slightly, and puts it down to the party’s ongoing internal issues and the spike in the popularity of the ANC since the so-called ‘Ramaphoria’. – Radio702
