South African President Cyril Ramaphosa Secures Second Term

Cyril Ramaphosa

In a historic moment, South Africa’s ruling party, the African National Congress (ANC), re-elected President Cyril Ramaphosa for a second term. The announcement came during the first sitting of the 7th Parliament’s National Assembly.

Cyril Ramaphosa’s re-election followed a dramatic late coalition deal with the main opposition and other parties. The 71-year-old leader secured a convincing victory in a vote against a surprise candidate, Julius Malema, the leader of the far-left Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF).

The ANC, which had lost its 30-year parliamentary majority in a landmark election two weeks prior, managed to secure Cyril Ramaphosa’s return to power with the support of lawmakers from the second-largest Democratic Alliance party and other allies.

Chief Justice Raymond Zondo announced that Cyril Ramaphosa received 283 votes, while Malema received 44 votes.

He is expected to announce his new Cabinet after his inauguration, marking the beginning of his second term as South Africa’s President4.

This re-election signifies a critical moment in South Africa’s political landscape, as Cyril Ramaphosa continues to lead the nation through complex challenges and opportunities. His leadership will be closely watched as the country navigates economic recovery, social reforms, and international relations in the coming years. 🇿🇦🌟
