DA and EFF to reveal coalition details today

BY CHARL BOSCH - AUGUST 17, 2016

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.
