Survey reinforces what we all know...
So, according to a study by Markinor, the ANC will survive a split in the tripartite alliance by Cosatu and the SACP. The study was conducted between ANC voters around the country. The study found that 60% of these voters would continue to vote for the ANC regardless of whether Cosatu or the SACP left the alliance.

This is what we've known for a while, at least in theory. The SACP and Cosatu hold few realistic policies for government, a fact the ANC knows full well. All the bluster coming out of SACP and Cosatu camps in the past two years has come to naught, and rightly so. There is no governing future for the worker parties without the ANC. Simple.
