South Africa's ANC Leads in Polls

(24 Apr 09 - RV) South Africa's long-dominant governing party is looking to do as well or even better than in past elections. Preliminary results from the 12.63 million ballots counted so far from Wednesday's election showed that Jacob Zuma's African National Congress party was leading the vote with nearly 67 percent. Parliament elects South Africa's president by a simple majority, putting Zuma in line for the post when the new assembly votes in May.
Mike Pothier is the research coordinator for the parliamentary office of the South African Catholic Bishops’ Conference. He says that Zuma brings both positive and negative changes to the country. RealAudioMP3
