Politics are entering uncharted waters after the African National Congress lost its parliamentary majority in South Africa’s 29 May general election, leaving the governing party to embark on uncomfortable national coalition-building and some very spiky provincial deal-making. Many grassroots ANC members would prefer a return to more radical roots via deals with Julius Malema’s EFF or ex-president Zuma’s MK Party, but others are hoping President Ramaphosa can secure a stable alliance that promotes economic stability with the Democratic Alliance. Failed coalition-building would lead to another election, in which the ANC might not do better a second time around.
