South Africa On Tenterhooks As ANC Navigates Coalition Dilemma After Historic Election Loss: Here Is Full Expert Analysis On Potential Scenarios For Coalition Government

By Spy Uganda

Kampala: Following last week’s elections, South Africa is on tenterhooks for the African National Congress (ANC) in regards to whom it will choose as a partner to govern the nation after it lost its majority for the first time in 30 years of democracy.

Since the end of apartheid in 1994, the ANC had consistently won every election with ease. However, this time around, voters frustrated with joblessness, inequality, and frequent power outages awarded the ANC only 40.2% of the vote, a significant drop from 57.5% five years ago. Although the ANC still secured the largest share of votes among all parties, it fell short of the majority needed to govern alone, plunging South Africa into uncharted political territory.

The ANC’s potential coalition partners span a wide political spectrum, from the free-market-oriented Democratic Alliance (DA) to parties like uMkhonto we Sizwe (MK) and the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF), which advocate for the nationalization of mines and banks and land redistribution.
