    Sounds like a lot of crying to me. Those 30 parties combined will unlikely have more than 3 or 4% of the votes.
    Load of nonsense. Our electoral process is pretty good. Not perfect. But the few dodgy incidents tend to be localised and make no difference to overall numbers realistically (and generally are picked up). The biggest complaint those parties have is they not gonna get their deposit back.

    We will find out when he selects his cabinet. If he reduces it like he said he would and gets rid of the problems, he will have show he is in control of the party (at least enough) to start taking action. If the cabinet stays large and their are rotten apples then nothing will change any time soon (or ever).

    What is always of concern though is what pressure the EFF will put onto policy. And from a personally point of view it is worrying for me to see the FF+ grow so considerably.

    Keeping an eye on this.

    In other news, Kenya's president hasn't been seen in public since he went to China to beg for more money for his white elephant trans-national railway line. It's trending on twitter too

    This week in peace talks. the Sudanese protesters wanted a 4 year transitional government, the military wanted 2, so they split the difference and agreed on a 3 year interim government. Also there may be hope for West Cameroon, as the President talks of peace. Finally, South Sudan president Salva Kiir says he has forgiven rebel leaders Riek Machar

    Good signs.

    Agreed re both EFF and FF+. I'm not even vehemently against the FF+ in terms of policy; it's more a case of fringe parties that are attractive to more radical voters gaining traction.

    The last thing SA needs is a rise in radicalism. We're in a precarious social position as it is.

    Mixed bag that does not really bode well for the future with the obvious corrupt elements of the ANC still having to much power.

    You know you have serious problems when an organization with the likes of Zimbabwe as one of its members won't let you join.

    Ethiopia's Prime Minister Dr. Abiy Ahmed stepping into the Sudan crisis as a mediator. Wish him well given how the TMC have been acting lately

    Absolutely heart-wrenching to read about what's going on in Sudan right now. Just dismal. No one gives a **** about Yemen either. ****ed up.
