UDM President Bantu Holomisa has announced that his party would enter into a coalition government with opposition parties with the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality, Rustenburg and possibly Johannesburg.
In a Facebook post today, Holomisa wrote: “The electorate has rejected the corrupt and arrogant governance of the ANC and has not endorsed any party in the hung councils.
“The message sent by the electorate is significant for our system of government and our constitutional democracy.
“We are firm in our resolve to respect the voice of the electorate at all times and will do everything possible to not disappoint them.
“During our discussions with other parties, additional issues were raised, many of which were of national nature. We then solicited commitment from both the ANC and DA to enter into a process of resolving such issues.”
