LA PARTICIPATION ÉLECTORALE À JOHANNESBURG: LES DÉTERMINANTS SOCIO-ÉCONOMIQUES ET POLITIQUES

Christine Fauvelle-Aymar ()

Revue Tiers-Monde, 2008, vol. n° 196, issue 4, 851-873

Abstract: Numerous studies have shown that turnout increases with the socio-economic status of the voters. In the Johannesburg case, this study shows that contrary to this usual finding, turnout is higher in the most deprived wards. This article also studies the influence of political factors and in particular of the degree of political competition on turnout. And then again the result is different from the usual one. In Johannesburg, turnout decreases with the degree of electoral closeness. Nevertheless, different specificities of the South African political situation may help to understand these unexpected results.
