South Africa’s African National Congress is claiming victory in South Africa's elections. The ruling party is set for another five-year term in office, continuing its unbroken tenure since the fall of apartheid.
And South Africa's 20-year-old democracy had plenty to celebrate with a voter turnout of more than 70 percent.
The ANC vote was down on 2009 figures but still more than 62 percent. The Democratic Alliance polled just over 22 percent and the Economic Freedom Fighters gained around six percent.
But the results failed to mask an underlying dissatisfaction over high levels of unemployment, a lack of basic services and allegations of widespread corruption.
So is the rainbow nation at a turning point? And are there signs of changes to come?
