Elections 2024: Voters unlikely to be swayed by last-minute campaign efforts

# With only a few days remaining until South Africa’s elections, political analyst Dirk Kotzé believes that voters have already made up their minds and are unlikely to be swayed by last-minute campaign efforts. This comes as political parties are spending the remaining days before elections intensifying their door-to-door campaigns and hosting rallies. Kotzé believes that at this late stage, campaigning can only affirm voters’ existing decisions and not change their choices. He further expressed disappointment in the performance of independent candidates, noting their limited impact compared to established parties.
