Fikile Mbalula, the ANC secretary-general, has reaffirmed that the party has no intention of forming government coalitions before the upcoming elections next year.
“We are not in talks with anyone about what can happen next year because we are not just convinced. We are very clear that we will still govern this country through the mandate of the people because the people are telling us so and the people are not saying to us that the ANC should actually be out of power,” said Mbalula.
Earlier this month, the DA revealed its intentions to join forces with various other parties with the aim of removing the ANC from power.
The parties involved in this coalition initiative are the IFP, the Freedom Front Plus, and ActionSA.
Discussions among these parties are anticipated to take place in August.
Speaking at the ANC Women’s League conference on Saturday, Mbalula expressed confidence that the governing party would emerge victorious in the elections.
“It will be tested in terms of the election next year and we are restating and stating a clear position that we are working for ANC overwhelming majority.”
