Abstract
The article discusses the developments in South Africa in connection with the August 3, 2016 local elections and analyses the election manifestos of six political parties: the ruling African National Congress, Democratic Alliance, Economic Freedom Fighters, United Democratic Movement, Inkatha Freedom Party and Congress of the People. It shows that in a situation of political complications associated, in particular, with corruption scandals, these elections have gained national importance. The setback of the ANC that has lost control over the municipalities of several important cities, raises the question of changes in its leadership and in its policies.
