Any survey of political behavior in South Africa, ought to begin with a consideration of the role of pressure groups or interest groups. The term “interest group" is to be preferred to "pressure group" because the latter has tended, inter alia, to become a term of abuse, consequently losing some of its scientific potency.5 Once the interest group analysis has been made, it then becomes possible to judge the party system, and, finally, the reaction of global governmental authority to the various pressures.
