AIC to listen to ANC on coalition talks
The AIC says it has been invited to Centurion where the ANC is holding its NEC meeting.
JOHANNESBURG - The African Independent Congress (AIC) says it's simply going to listen to what the ANC has to say today when the two parties meet to discuss forming a possible coalition.
The AIC says it has been invited to the St George Hotel in Centurion where the African National Congress (ANC) is holding its NEC meeting.
AIC leaders have already indicated that they have been approached by the Democratic Alliance for coalition talks.
The party says it won't back down on its demands.
The party's Mandla Galo said, "I made my point clear that we want Matatiele to go back to KwaZulu-Natal, we don't compromise."
The AIC says local ANC structures in Ekurhuleni, Johannesburg, Nelson Mandela Bay and Rustenburg have approached it showing interest in forming partnerships.
But it says it wants to hear what the national structures of the party have to say first before making a decision on whether to consider coalitions.
