S.African opposition candidate promises an end to ANC reign

Benoni (South Africa) (AFP) – South Africa’s main opposition party has vowed to unseat the ANC in the general election, with the party in power since the end of apartheid likely to suffer a historic setback in what is billed as the most hotly contested election in thirty years. “On Wednesday, the ANC will lose the outright majority that it has abused for decades, it will lose the majority that it has abused to push this country into unemployment, to commit corruption and misrule,” says Democratic Alliance party leader, John Steenhuisen. Opinion polls suggest the DA will not overtake the ANC to become South Africa’s biggest single party, but it hopes to unite with a coalition of smaller outfits to take power.
