‘Municipal election results put ANC on uncertain ground’
The elections have so far seen the ANC losing outright control of four major metros, including three in GP.
JOHANNESBURG - The African National Congress (ANC) in Johannesburg says the municipal election results have put the party on uncertain ground but says it's committed to continue to serve the people of the city as a government or an opposition.
The party has given an update on its coalition talks and its position ahead of tomorrow's council sitting.
The elections have so far seen the ANC losing outright control of four major metros, including three in Gauteng.
Johannesburg Mayor Parks Tau says he's aware that the party stands a risk of losing its leadership in the city.
"The ANC's Greater Johannesburg Reginal Executive Committee is committed to serving the people of the City of Johannesburg in any leadership capacity whether in government or in opposition."
Tau says the party can't confirm any coalitions at this stage as talks are still ongoing.
"If we announce partnerships we want them to be with us. So we can't speak on behalf of partners when they are not here."
The party says while they are uncertain about the future of the city going into tomorrow's council meeting, they will confidently back their candidates.
