Constitutional Democracy in South-Africa as a Model ?

What is the state of democracy in South Africa fifteen years after the
first elections of 1994 ? While often presented as a model, South-Africa
is experiencing contradictory tensions. Its political and judicial system
has radically broken with the past and may be seen as a success with
regards to the protection of fundamental rights, the balance of power
and the integration of legal pluralism. On the other hand, the gradual
exit from the transition period has brought to light intense political
struggles within the ANC ruling party, and these struggles are jeopardizing
the balance of power. In addition to these political difficulties,
the existence of many social problems requires a heightened vigilance to
make sure that the foundations of the fragile South-African democracy
are not put into question.
