Wayne Sussman on Local Government Elections
What just happened? Join Wayne Sussman for a tour through the 2021 local government elections.
Now that the figures have been crunched and studied, Wayne Sussman, fondly known as ‘the Elections Geek’, will unpack the results of the November elections and share his insights.
Did the ANC and DA do as badly as reported? How did the EFF perform? What is there to make of the rise of ActionSA, Freedom Front Plus and the Patriotic Alliance?
Sussman will look at the current coalition politics, affecting an unprecedented number of municipal councils, and what this mean for the next five years of local government.
He will also look ahead at what these elections tell us about how things are shaping up for the 2024 national general election.
Sussman was the election analyst for the Daily Maverick and eNCA this year. He also writes regularly for Business Day.
