The Democracy Index (DI)

This index measures the state of our democracy in South Africa in terms of plurality, bill of rights, political culture and accountability.  It also measures the competitiveness of our democracy vis-à-vis the rest of the continent and internationally.

General Outlook

General political parties have no strong presence in any province, region or locality but exist in small pockets throughout the country.  They may have representation in the National Assembly and in one or more provincial legislatures.  They may also have seats in one or more local municipalities.  Currently this category includes COPE, PAC and APC.
