Launch – Coalition Country: South Africa after the ANC by Leon Schreiber (25 April)

What will rise when the ANC falls?

The ANC has governed South Africa for more than two decades, but it will not remain in power forever.

Electoral trends suggest their remarkable run is coming to an end soon.

If the ANC’s support falls below 50% in 2019, the country could soon be run by a coalition of political parties.

This will completely transform South Africa’s political landscape and the consequences will be felt by everyone.

One of South Africa’s brightest young political minds, Leon Schreiber, explores the most likely scenarios for South Africa’s political future. Will Mmusi Maimane and Julius Malema be in charge of the country in the near future and can such a coalition last? Or will the ANC and the EFF form a united front to rule the country, and what will the consequences be? The era of one-party dominance is coming to an end.

South Africans must urgently start preparing for this new reality.
Leon Schreiber is an author and a Senior Research Specialist at Princeton University in the United States. He obtained a PhD in Political Science in Germany. Besides his work for Princeton, Leon regularly participates in television and radio programmes as a political analyst, and writes for some of South Africa’s leading newspapers and magazines.
