S Africa's ANC braces for toughest election

Anger within ruling party at economic hardship and corruption scandals could dent parliamentary majority.

    South Africa's ruling African National Congress is expected to win elections due to be held this week but economic hardship and accusations of corruption are likely to make the poll its toughest since the end of apartheid.

    The party has significant support because of its role in ending white-minority rule but even if it wins Wednesday's vote, it will have to manage high leavels of dissatisfaction among South Africa's poor.
