DA: Minority government on the cards for Joburg and Tshwane
The DA Federal Executive Chairperson James Selfe says that coalition talks with EFF were unavailing due to persistent ideological differences between the two opposition parties.
Selfe explains that the coalition deadline is not enough time to resolve the challenges, adding that the DA is committed to continuing a long-term discussion with the red berets.
There were too many issues to get out of the way between now and the formation of the coalition.James Selfe, DA Federal Executive Chairperson
According to Selfe, a minority government will most likely play out in Tshwane and Johannesburg where a government, lacking an outright majority of seats, is dependent on the support of other parties or independents.
We will be dependent on other parties for support on key votes and key issues.James Selfe, DA Federal Executive Chairperson
Selfe maintains that that the DA has enough in common with smaller parties such as COPE, UDM and ACDP in order to run municipalities effectively.
