ANC ‘hasn’t discussed’ W Cape coalition

Pretoria – The ANC says it has not yet considered entering into coalition talks in the Western Cape, as initial results show it is lagging significantly behind the DA in the province.

Currently, the DA has over 960 000 votes in the province, while the ANC has just over 520 000.

ANC deputy secretary general Jessie Duarte told News24 at the IEC national results operations centre in Pretoria that the possibility of entering into a coalition “has not been discussed”. Watch.


ANC national spokesperson Jackson Mthembu reiterated what Duarte said, saying “there are no coalition talks yet”.

However, he added that the ANC’s strongholds are mostly in rural areas in the Western Cape, and many of those results are not yet in.

“We are keeping our options open,” he said.
