The party's 2019 election results reveal some kind of resurrection according to analysts.

The Inkatha Freedom Party's (IFP) national results are showing some kind of resurrection according to analysts.

By Friday afternoon the party had gathered 3.49 % of the vote with 542 150 ballots cast in their favour this week.

It has garnered 17% of the vote in KwaZulu- Natal as of Friday afternoon.

IFP spokesman Mkhuleko Hlengwa says coming from a difficult, past they have successfully inspired confidence with the electorate.

We had a splinter party, loss of municipalities and regained those in 2016 and we have been winning bi-elections. We have been modelling our campaign along bi-elections just for the trajectory.

Mkhuleko Hlengwa, Spokesperson - IFP

I remember saying in 2014 that we are down but not out. We are grateful for this outcome and believe it is good for the future.

Mkhuleko Hlengwa, Spokesperson - IFP

He says they had to go back to the basics of reorganising branches and constituencies.

We had a thorough audit of these branches which is part of the reason why conference was postponed.

Hlengwa says a combination of all its efforts has culminated into a result which arrests an electoral decline and is a good footing for the coming elections in 2021.
