Mandela's ANC party lost its majority in the South African parliament and now has to govern with a coalition government. It is time because the ANC has governed for the last decade-plus incompetently. It may reform and govern better if they want to stay in power..

Here is an article with maps showing the election breakdown...


With 99 percent of votes counted, results show the ruling ANC will lose its majority and be forced to seek coalition partners.

The Democratic Alliance (DA), the country’s principal opposition party, is currently in second place followed by the MK party and EFF.

Here is a video with a better breakdown of each party that earned the vote...

India is in the last phase of its election for 2024...


Here’s how votes for India’s Lok Sabha polls will be counted using EVMs on June 4.

India’s multiphase voting concluded on Saturday after seven rounds of elections over 44 days. The giant electoral exercise – the largest in democratic history – saw 15 million polling staff travelling the length and breadth of the vast country to conduct the vote at about 1 million polling stations, many of which were located in remote villages, hills, deserts and conflict zones.

Voters have braved soaring temperatures to cast their ballots, with the seven phases – April 19, April 26, May 7, May 13, May 20, May 25 and June 1 – recording turnouts of 66.1, 66.7, 61.0, 67.3, 60.5, 63.4 and 62 percent, respectively. An estimated 969 million people were registered to vote. Ballots were cast using electronic voting machines (EVMs).
