Coalition talks at municipalities set to be finalised this week as deadline looms
POLITICAL parties will this week finalise coalition talks as the Thursday deadline looms. Last week DA federal chairperson Helen Zille said the opposition was negotiating with eight political parties and community movements over coalitions.
The Cederberg Municipality in the Western Cape has become the first hung council in the country where parties have entered into a coalition agreement.
The DA, Freedom Front Plus and Cederberg First Residents’ Association entered a deal, with Zille announcing it on social media.
After the polls the IEC announced there were 15 hung councils in the Western Cape.
Meanwhile EFF leader Julius Malema said the red berets have their eyes set on running Tshwane, while the ANC should govern Ekurhuleni and Herman Mashaba’s ActionSA runs Johannesburg.
Mashaba said Gauteng coalitions are still ongoing. He revealed at the weekend that a coalition government with the EFF had been rejected. “I have personally written to the EFF and communicated our position. It was a letter that respectfully expressed our appreciation for their engagements and our reservations regarding their proposal.
“In the event of ActionSA’s involvement in a coalition government, our response also committed ActionSA to collaborate with any party with regard to the service delivery priorities of their constituencies in relation to the development of budgets
