Title Beyond party politics : to what extent, if any, are there unexpected democracy deepening consequences of one-party dominance in South Africa?
Publication (Day/Month/Year) 2003
The degree of centralisation and monopolisation of power by the African National Congress (ANC) is raising concerns about the long-term prospects for democracy in South Africa. Conventional party politics cannot at present provide the mechanism to check tendencies towards authoritarian domination: loyalty to the ruling party, lack of credible opposition parties and the electoral system itself are all factors contributing to the entrenchment of the status quo.
