‘Coalition decisions will ‘fundamentally reconfigure’ SA politics’

Political policy analyst Somadoda Fikeni says Wednesday’s revelations by the Democratic Alliance, Economic Freedom Fighters and the Inkatha Freedom Party on their coalition decisions will fundamentally re-configure the South African political landscape.

Describing these announcements as epoch-making, Fikeni says ruling party has been pushed to the periphery and its control is noted secured unless it does something profound and special in a short space of time.

Speaking on SAfm’s PM Live, Fikeni says multi-party coalitions may result in indecisiveness and vulnerability in terms of the agility of political parties

“But at the same time, the outcome of these elections is putting everybody into a space where they have to account and they may feel vulnerable, they will not take any voting for granted.”
