The coming suspension of electoral disbelief

Election Day in South Africa is barely six months away, to be ‘held next year, before May of 2019’... Usually, this run-up period, with its built-in electoral choices, captures the national imagination and breathes excitement. Election 2019, however, is ringing in a new era, one in which voters will be asked to suspend their disbelief about the political parties available to vote for. Even more, given the issues of weak and withering government and governance, voters will be asked to pretend that they believe they will be voting for a government that will take command and govern.
