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.”
