African Nationalists, Democrats and Fighters: finding room for compromise in SA’s metros
(2016)
Abstract
The August 2016 municipal elections will be the most competitive to date. As outlined in a new Briefing Note, the African National Congress (ANC) faces a challenge in four of the country’s eight metropolitan municipalities, or “metros”. The Democratic Alliance (DA) and Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) could keep the ANC below 50% of the vote in Nelson Mandela Bay, Tshwane, Johannesburg and Ekurhuleni. In the event of “hung councils”, how these three parties approach coalition government will be crucial.
