The Incumbent President

Having held the majority of the seats in the National Assembly since 1994, the ANC is expected to win re-election this year, albeit with a possibly reduced majority. Incumbent President Jacob Zuma has sought votes by highlighting what he considers to be improvements, including the provision of housing, water and electricity to millions.
