Quick Glance: Potential Hurdles in ANC-DA Coalition Talks
  • The possibility of the ANC collaborating with the DA could soon become a reality, as their combined support exceeds 60% and would see them dominate the National Assembly.

  • The DA opposes the National Health Insurance Act and Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment, key tools for the ANC, showing potential obstacles to coalition talks.

  • The DA may reject Paul Mashatile as Deputy President due to previous adverse findings by the Zondo Commission.

  • Multiple parties, including the DA, IFP, and FF+, show flexibility in coalitions and are open to talks with various parties, including the ANC.

Quick Glance: Can South Africa's Cyril Ramaphosa Survive the ANC's Election Setback?
  • South Africa's ruling African National Congress (ANC) has lost its majority in the country's election this week for the first time since the end of apartheid, in a major setback for the party that led the country's liberation from white minority rule.

  • With nearly all votes counted, the ANC has won about 40 percent of the mandate, followed by the principal opposition party, the Democratic Alliance, with 21 percent. In third place is the big success story of the election: Former President Jacob Zuma's uMKhonto we Sizwe (MK) party, which has ravaged the ANC's core voting base.

  • The limited options that Ramaphosa and the ANC face as they try to pull together a coalition that can rule are magnified, with analysts suggesting a grand coalition with the DA might offer a more stable governing alliance for both the ANC and South Africa at the moment, uniting the nation and boosting investor confidence in Africa's most advanced economy.

  • Either way, there will be challenges, but the ANC must consider another factor in its own leadership calculations: Will removing Ramaphosa from power actually help the party recover, or is there a need for rational and pragmatic thinking to prioritize the country, markets, and people?

Quick Glance: South Africa’s ANC Pursues National Unity Gov’t After Election Setback
  • Reeling from its worst electoral performance in 30 years, South Africa’s ruling African National Congress (ANC) plans a 'Government of National Unity' to lead the nation.

  • The ANC leadership has decided to invite political parties to form a Government of National Unity rather than entering direct coalitions with rivals.

  • Forming a broad, multiparty alliance aims to reduce the ANC's dependence on individual political rivals and demonstrate political savvy.

  • Challenges in forming a Government of National Unity lie in finding coalition partners that do not weaken the ANC's position and avoid major compromises on the party's policy positions.
