ANC Wins 36% Majority!

Here’s a different take on last week’s election …. a little arithmetic (using figures from the official IEC website) shows that the ANC’s 11.4 million votes is 36% of those that could, potentially, have been cast.  Or to put it another way – over six in ten eligible voters did not vote for the ruling party.

  1. This math is so flawed. 6/10 didn’t vote for the ANC that means 6/10 didn’t vote for the opposition. The ratio is still constant irrespective what variables one adds.
