QUIZ: Which political party best matches you?

This interesting new tool could help you decide which political party is the best for you...


The most contested national election that South Africa has ever seen is around the corner.

On 29 May 2024, millions of South Africans will head to the polls to vote for the political party they believe will be able to bring positive change to our beautiful country.

Unfortunately, knowing which party to vote for can be extremely difficult.

With all the different parties campaigning for votes at the same time, key messages and core values could get lost in all the noise.

There might also be certain values that you agree with and disagree with within one party, which adds to the difficulty of the decision.

It often feels like the decision comes down to choosing the lesser of two evils.  

Although no one can tell you who to vote for, The Brenthurst Foundation has set up a quiz to help South Africans narrow down their choices.

How it works:

  1. The quiz will ask eight questions about your views on key issues. On each question, you get to decide how strongly you feel about one option or the other.
  2. Based on your answers, their algorithm will suggest three parties for the next step. You can add two more if you'd like.
  3. Compare your parties. You decide how you think each of these parties will govern through a series of 6 questions. At the end, you'll see insights about your choices.

According to their official website, The Brenthurst Foundation is on the frontier of new ideas and innovative actions for strengthening Africa's economic performance.

The foundation has three key areas it focuses on:

  1. Encouraging key decision-makers and experts to share experiences and insights at private meetings and seminars.
  2. Delivering relevant, practical policy advice to governments. 
  3. Generating new thinking and thought-leadership to address Africa's development challenges.
