South Africans Happy With Democracy - Poll

Six out of every 10 South Africans are satisfied with their nation's style of democracy, says the Afrobarometer

An independent African think tank, Afrobarometer research group, says that six of every 10 South Africans are satisfied with their nation's style of democracy, but belief in an unrestricted media has dropped.

In its latest poll, the Afrobarometer states that ‘personal satisfaction’ on the country's democracy rose from 49 percent in 2008 to 60 percent in 2011.

Ahead of proposed media curbs two decades after the end of apartheid era rule, 61 percent of people believed the media should publish without government control, compared to almost 80 percent in 2008.
