Political researchers Ipsos have released their facts and figures for the most popular leaders in South Africa. The survey pits the three main party front-men against each other, as Cyril Ramaphosa, Mmusi Maimane and Julius Malema are judged on whether they are “doing a good job” or not. Roughly 26.7 million registered South African voters will cast their ballots in the country’s sixth democratic elections. The elections are set to be the most contested in South Africa’s democratic history, with a record-breaking 48 political parties contesting. The Independent Elections Commission (IEC) said close to 60 million ballot papers were printed for the country’s 22 924 voting stations.
