Last week Democratic Alliances calculated its move and saw an opportunity to win over several municipalities without any coalition negotiations with any political parties although there was a need.
Democratic Alliance was at first on agreement with political parties like ActionSA, Freedom Front plus, UDM, and other small parties to take over the City of Johannesburg and City of Tswane.
But in last minutes of voting, Democratic Alliance pulled out of the deal. “The multiparty group has no understanding of the DA’s intentions from this point on ... As a group, the multiparty group calls upon the DA to honour its commitment to keep the ANC out of these municipalities by engaging with potential coalition partners in good faith,” said the multiparty group in a joint statement.
Now the DA seems have swallowed their pride. It has been reported that the The Democratic Alliance has approached the ActionSA in Gauteng requesting an urgent meeting on Monday afternoon in what some see as a new move by the DA to open fresh talks with parties that helped it attain power in the Gauteng metros.
