By eNCA • Issue #180 • View online
3 days to go and two massive rallies in South Africa today. ANC faces a mammoth task of persuading voters amid corruption scandals, load-shedding, high unemployment and stagnant economic growth.
Ramaphosa previously promised to turn the tide according to political analyst Karima Brown.
The EFF this weekend are also busy with their final election rally in the final push to get their voters and the ‘undecideds’ to head out to the voting booth.

BEE VS RADICAL ECONOMIC TRANSFORMATION
The economy is at centre-stage in the manifestos of all political parties leading up to the 8 May election date with particular focus on matters involving radical economic transformation, land expropriation without compensation, affirmative action and structural reform. A large part of today’s rallies by the ANC and EFF will be focusing on that. Research conducted by MarkData takes a look at BEE and RET and how the EFF and ANC supporters feel towards each policy.
