SAIRR Criticised for Being ‘Hostile Towards ANC’

The National Union of Metalworkers of South Africa (NUMSA) says a survey claiming that the African National Congress (ANC) is losing support in the country is a clear sign that the South African Institute of Race Relations (SAIRR) has taken a hostile stance against the political party in favour of the Democratic Alliance.
 
NUMSA spokesperson, Irvin Jim, argues that, "The survey is detached from electoral and political realities, as evidenced by recent victories in by-elections by the ANC in most parts of the country."
 

ANC Losing Wards in Local Elections – NGO

The latest survey by the South African Institute for Race Relations (SAIRR) has found that the African National Congress (ANC) has lost 38 wards in local government elections over the past four years.

The study also found that between the previous local government elections in 2006, and up until August 2010, the ANC managed to hold 306 ward seats, gain 17, and lose 55.

SAIRR researcher, Marius Roodt, predicted the ANC is likely to lose support in the upcoming local government elections.
