D-Day for hung municipalities
By Pitso Molemane
South Africans living in hung municipalities will today know who will govern them between the DA and the ANC. The EFF and the DA will announce their decisions on long awaited coalition talks.
By 12 noon EFF leader Julius Malema will hold a media briefing in Alexandra.
At 2h30 the DA’s Mmusi Maimane is also expected to announce the outcome of their coalition talks in a press briefing in Sandton.
Among the hung councils are Tshwane, Ekurhuleni, Mogale City and Johannesburg in Gauteng – as well as the Nelson Mandela Bay metro in the Eastern Cape
The DA’s Mabine Seabe says the selection has seen the re-alignment of politics in the country.
“This where the opposition parties are the major players and the major party is now the minor party,” he said.
