The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) Spokesperson, Mbuyiseni Ndlozi, says they have formally met with the Democratic Alliance (DA) and the African National Congress (ANC) to discuss possible coalitions in metros and municipalities that have no outright winners.

Coalition talks between parties and their outcomes will dominate South Africa's political scene this week after the local elections failed to yield an outright winner in over 20 municipalities.

The most intense negotiations are expected in the Johannesburg and Tshwane metros, where the EFF is the kingmaker between the ANC and DA.

The ANC won 53.91% of the national vote, 8% down from 2011. The DA is second with over 26% and the EFF third with over 8%.

Speaking on AM Live, Ndlozi says, “At this stage we had a conversation about confirmation to each other. We can indeed have a conversation that people can come with proposals with what they are offering. I can confirm that we met the ANC, we met the DA and other political parties.”

“Remember we didn't win anything so we can't go and meet people and say to them no we demand this. The reality is you can't speak to people through the media. So, some of the things we've been saying on the media platform about what we stand for, about what we believe, what we think particularly for instance about the ANC, it’s an opportunity now to say all those things to them directly.”
