Basically he he made the decision that apartheid needed to be reformed, he dismantled petty apartheid laws and then announced the end of apartheid altogether. He released leaders of the black resistance, including Nelson Mandela. In addition, he signed the Pretoria Minote.

You tell me you are supposed to know your country and its leaders!!


FW De Klerk was elected President of South Africa in 1989. He played a key role in ending the racist system of apartheid. Although he was an upholder of white privilege, he showed the leadership necessary when the system was bringing the country to bankruptcy. He headed a radical change of action. He kept up negotiations with Mandela and the ANC and agreed to draw up a new constitution with equal voting rights for the next presidential election. For his role in assuring what could have been a violent clash instead turned into a peaceful transition, De Klerk received the Nobel prize.

.It is really not possible to credit the stopping of apartheid in South Africa to any one individual, although the iconic first black president of South Africa, Nelson Mandela played a leading role. The African National Congress, and the Pan African Congress progressively applied pressure both locally and internationally, from the 1960s, including an armed struggle to force the change. Economic sanctions were progressively applied internationally. All of these factors ultimately resulted in the government of the day capitulating. Nelson Mandela was freed from prison by the then President F.W. De Klerk, and the African National Congress was unbanned. Both Nelson Mandela and F.W de Klerk were awarded the Nobel peace prize
