So – what do the election results mean for the country? Many of us have been reflecting intensely on this much debated question since the results of the 6th democratic elections were announced. Stephen Grootes and Lumkile Mondi, two leading analysts of the country's politics and society, shared very original observations, deep questions and thought provoking analysis in a serious, frank debate on this topic at the ISS in Pretoria last week.
