1. The African National Congress (ANC) has announced its willingness to form coalitions with other political parties following the 2024 elections. This comes after the ANC’s National Executive Committee(NEC) held a meeting to discuss the party’s future plans. Despite winning 40.28% of the national vote, the ANC lost control of KwaZulu-Natal and other provinces, forcing it to seek coalition partners.

ANC General Spokesperson , Mahlengi Bhengu Motsiri, addressed the media at Chief Albert Luthuli House in Johannesburg, stating that the party is open to negotiating with other political parties. “We are willing to work with other parties to form a government that will benefit our people. We need to put aside our differences and work together to develop our country.” Motsiri emphasized. She also mentioned that the ANC is willing to engage with parties such as the Inkatha Freedom Party (IFP), Democratic Alliance (DA), Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF), Patriotic Alliance (PA), and National Freedom Party (NFP).

“We are committed to serving our people with integrity and transparency. We need to work together to develop our country. We are facing a challenging situation where we need to choose coalition partners. We are extending an olive branch to any party willing to work with us,” Bhengu-Motsiri said.

The ANC leader emphasized that the party will prioritize the interests of the people and work towards finding solutions that benefit all.
