ANC Considers Confidence-and-Supply Agreement Amid Coalition Talks

todayJune 4, 2024 5

Background
share close

The African National Congress faces a pivotal moment as its national executive committee convenes today to explore potential coalitions following a disappointing election outcome, securing only 40.2% of the national votes. Senior ANC leaders are reportedly leaning towards a confidence-and-supply agreement, favoring a scenario where the ANC forms a minority government. Under this arrangement, opposition partners would align with the ANC on critical decisions such as confidence motions and budgets, while the ANC retains executive positions nationally. However, concessions may be made in Parliament, potentially relinquishing positions like the speaker’s chair.
