EFF and DA coalition: Who's policies get compromised?

It is still unclear, particularly in big metros as to who the EFF will go into coalition with. However, analysts have been saying that a coalition between DA and EFF looks possible, rather then one between ANC and EFF. Talks are still underway and it is said that the results will be made known this weekend.

The issue of land has many people questioning whether the DA and EFF will ever find common ground. The issue on land policy has been the one of the main differences between DA and EFF.

EFF always advocated for expropriation of land without compensation, while on the other hand the DA has emphasised constitutionally protected property rights.

It is reported that Cape Town Mayor Patricia de Lille was instrumental in the coalition talks between DA and EFF, and is pushing that the DA accommodate the EFF’s demand for land and economic transformation.

What are the possibilities of this happening?

John Maytham spoke to Professor Ben Cousins, Chairman for Poverty, Land and Agrarian Studies at UWC about DA/EFF coalition and land policy.

If the DA/EFF council comes up with a set of, well argued proposals around particular farms or areas of land and we want to do this at local level and here are the possible impacts and launch it into the public domain, it will be embarrassing for the ANC not to grant them permission.
