S. Africa's ANC & DA Sign Agreement To Form Coalition Government (PICS) by WannaHowzit(m): 12:02pm On Jun 14
South Africa's governing ANC, and the official opposition DA party have signed a framework agreement to form a government of national unity.

The agreement will include the IFP. The document was signed by party representatives on Friday during a break of the first sitting of the National Assembly (NA) at the Cape Town International Convention Centre.

Fikile Mbalula, the ANC's secretary-general, signed the document on behalf of the ANC.

The agreement includes clauses that will guide the composition of the Cabinet and the provincial governments in Gauteng and KwaZulu-Natal.

It details the executive decision-making process, a conflict-breaking mechanism and provides guidelines for policymaking and the finalisation of the national budget.

The agreement will be made public and will serve as a precursor to a comprehensive agreement that will be concluded in the next few weeks.

President Cyril Ramaphosa and DA federal leader John Steenhuisen had telephonic discussions on Friday morning about how decision-making in Cabinet will work, and it was agreed that the concept of "sufficient consensus" will be implemented.

This means that should there be agreement between parties comprising at least 60% of seats in the NA, a decision can be made.

The two leaders had a face to face meeting on Thursday, which is said to have been cordial and positive, with both being receptive to finding consensus to move the process forward.

Helen Zille signed the document on behalf of the DA.

You might now know how much you guys are enjoying democracy in your country, but each time I read news like this from other countries like yours, sometimes I almost feel like crying for Nigeria, imagine election holding in the entire south Africa and abroad and no one died from electoral violence, not even a single news of violence and no party is feeling cheated because of how transparent it was.

Here when you speak out on the ills of democracy, you are attacked verbally sometimes physically for speaking the truth...

Congratulations to you guys, enjoy, I just want a country that works for the good of its people...

APC is a minority in the house of reps and they're governing without a coalition.

During apartheid there were no black parties in parliament, the ANC was banned and declared a terrorist movement. Today 4 of the top 5 parties are black and the DA itself is not the party that governed during apartheid - they were actually the liberal opposition.
