[JUST-IN] The EFF Coalition committee convened by their Deputy President Floyd Shivambhu Will meet the ANC Delegation lead by Treasurer General Paul Mashatile today on Coalition talks. The ANC has a special NWC to be held in person on Sunday to discuss these matters.
When the EFF wanted Tshwane , the ANC refused on the basis that their base would be significantly weakened it the proposed EFF government had access to it, discussions then collapsed. What will be different now? The EFF once proposed to the ANC that they want to govern Tshwane in exchange give the ANC Johannesburg, now there is also ethekweni in the mix as it’s hung. In KZN Jeff Radebe is leading coalition talks with the IFP.
The EFF has more seats than the IFP in Ethekweni. AND and IFP will need another party to get to 51% but if they go with the EFF they won’t need another party. But EFF says it will work with the ANC, DA says it will work with the ANC - so everyone will work with the ANC. So it seems the ANC is still the magnet. And when we check on our system it says, lot parties will have to associate with the EFF. Because it’s a deadly blow for an ANC to make coalition with DA and they might all sink in 2024 so the EFF learnt this and this is why they have such high standards. EFF are making demands that can be dealt with at National and not municipal level from a policy making perspective. Some demands a non - realistic but great ideas. I am off the view that they should focus on getting access to water to those that do not have it, instead of demanding free water for SASA recipients who already receive free litres of water per month.
