The Gauteng African National Congress (ANC) says it is in sensitive coalition talks and has started examining the reasons behind the party’s poor Local Government Election performance in the province.
This has emerged from a Provincial Executive Committee (PEC) meeting ahead of the National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting on Thursday.
The party has lost its governing majority in four municipalities including three metros.
The local government elections have been described as the ANC’s worst since the end of Apartheid in 1994.
Spokesperson Nkenke Kekana says more meetings are on the cards to reflect on the bruising elections.
“We have to come to a meeting, it will be a much bigger meeting of the PEC GP especially after the NEC to really draw lessons from what we have picked up but obviously there are things that are in our control and there are things that are not in our control,” says Kekana.
