The election in the Western Cape

Robert Mattes, Hermann Giliomee, Wilmot James

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

The newly demarcated Western Cape province provided South Africa with one of its most interesting and exciting campaigns and elections of 1994. Three political parties (the African National Congress, the Democratic Party and the National Party) all entertained realistic hopes of either controlling or playing a major role in the new provincial government, since the regional balance of power was truly in doubt right up until – and due to the IEC, long after – polling day.
