South Africa’s biggest opposition party Democratic Alliance envisaged a coalition government to govern the country after 2024’s general election, displacing the ruling African National Congress for the first time since the first democratic election in 1994. The DA doesn’t need to get 51 percent of the vote to topple the ANC. We only need to keep them with the EFF below 50 percent,’ said DA Leader John Steenhuisen in what the party called True State of the Nation Address before diplomatic corps at a speakers’ corner in Cape Town, the legislative capital of South Africa, two days ahead of the State of the Nation Address to be delivered by South African Cyril Ramaphosa. Steenhuisen said the party will only target ANC and radical EFF, the third-largest party in the parliament, over the next two years.
