With the resurgence of the mad boys and girls in red berets and red overalls it looks like all the inroads we had made upto now towards a #TwoPartyState is starting to be eroded.
The Radicals in @EFFSouthAfrica and the Nationalists in @VFPlus (both with 68 seats) gained much ground here plus the accumulated votes of the Mickey Mouse Parties (18 seats) didn't do any good to the beloved @Our_DA losing in total 88 seats combined.
SAD 😔!
Also exposed was the fact that we are not as such an equal society as we thought we are
The @IECSouthAfrica #ElectionNight Map shows how divided our society still is with @Our_DA more prevalent in colored communities as whilst @MYANC strong as expected in predominantly BlackAreas
Also the map above shows the two enclaves amongst the bigger scope of things being :
1. @VFPlus enclaves all over SA Rural Farms where predominantly White Afrikaaners do call home
2. @IFPinParliament also is heavenly concentrated in the KZN Rurals where most Zulu folks call home
As the incredible @CSIR would confirm that :
1. #Voters do not randomly allocate their electoral preferences but are influenced by
a. #Political
b. #SocioEconomic and
c. #Demographic factors as well as,
Past #VotingHistory; and
Changes in voting behaviour between one election and the next are also not random, but are correlated with past voting behaviour, demographic and socio-economic factors.
The good news in all this is us remain a #RainballNation with the entrenchments of #Constitution in every Fibre of our #Institutes weaving us stronger with each different opinion we might have.
We learn to #Negotiate and #Compromising to grow this #Democracy, @BarackObama said.
Those who fear the #Radicals and the #Nationalists are mainly the "good " folks who decide not to participate in the democratic dispensation
#Democracy is won only through participation and nothing else hence why #CompulsoryVoting should always be the future to sustain the system
