Despite the political uncertainty currently dominating in South Africa, the African National Congress is still the favourite party for many.

eNCA reports a recent study shows that the ANC is enjoying 60% of South African support.

Ipsos did a random survey called "Pulse of the People" and the results showed that South Africans still have faith in the ANC.

This is good news for the ruling party as they prepare for the upcoming general elections in 2019.

The Democratic Alliance has 13% support and the Economic Freedom Fighters currently have 7% support.

The Ipsos Director of Public Affairs Mari Harris feels it is thanks to President Cyril Ramaphosa that the ANC has a higher level of support than they had the same time last year.

Ramaphosa's New Dawn has given South Africans something to believe in again.

However, this does not mean the ANC has an easy road ahead of them. The ANC still has to sort out its internal problems and unite as a party.

The support for the ANC could falter if the party doesn't repair its image and remain a united front.

Many South Africans are still unsure about the future of the ANC and this could influence vote numbers when the time comes to place their vote.
