The article discusses the economic and political situation of South Africa before the elections in 1924. Like other countries, South Africa has suffered from the universal trade depression. It has been dependent on Great Britain for so many years for some of the commonest necessities. As long as Europe is in its present unsettled state, South Africa is facing financial stability. In the political side, the demand for secession in 1919 and 1920 proved to be disastrous. With the Nationalists' abolition of the secession plank, the chief obstacle between an offensive alliance of the two opposition parties was removed. The alliance between the Nationalists and Labor is significant, since it is tantamount to a partnership between the most conservative and most radical elements in the country.
