Abstract

Cherry explore three sets of dynamics in the E. Cape elections : the battle between the UDM and ANC for Umtata; the shift towards the DA and ID from white and coloured voters; and the stability of the urban African vote, represented by Kwazakele. Arguably the most interesting exploration is of ANC voters' stalwart support of the Party, articulated in their own words.
