DA and EFF to reveal coalition details today


The Democratic Alliance (DA) and Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) are expected to announce the outcome of coalition talks at separate meetings on Wednesday after more than a week of deliberations following the August third local government elections.

According to reports, the EFF will hold a press conference at Setswetla Circle in Alexandra at 12h00, while the DA will chair a similar event at the Radisson Blu Gautrain Hotel in Sandton two-and-a-half hours later. The party also confirmed on Tuesday afternoon that it would divulge details of talks in Nelson Mandela Bay at 15h30, after its historic 46.71% versus 40.92% win over the ruling party.

No confirmation from the ANC on the results of its coalition talks with other opposition has yet been made.
