Analysis | Coalition governments held together with sticky tape won't last
While the decline of the ANC is inevitable, what will replace it is still in question. This was the takeaway from Thusday’s City Press Twitter Space, which discussed what the results of the 2021 local government mean for the country going forward.
Ngoasheng pointed out that although the ANC is losing power, it remains the biggest united block in most municipalities. She added that there is no united political party that can challenge the ANC, rather a cluster of parties with different ideologies.
“What concerns me with coalitions is that there are no agreements that hold the coalition in place; they are essentially held together by sticky tape and they can fall apart at any time,” Ngoasheng said.Speaking about coalition governments, Ngoasheng said:"You need a stronger glue than not wanting the ANC in power."
She said the country has not figured out how to manage coalition governments. “We are coming from five years that has seen instability in Nelson Mandela Bay and Johannesburg. I had hoped that our politicians would come back with a little more maturity and, to me, that is worrisome.” headtopics.com
