The African National Congress (ANC) parliamentary lekgotla, a strategic planning meeting, is currently taking place in the city of Ekurhuleni, South Africa. The party is gathered to discuss the way forward for the upcoming 2024 general elections, as predictions show a below 50% voter support for the ruling party.
However, the ANC has also expressed concern about a coalition formed by opposition parties to unseat the governing party. Sources reveal that the ANC is aware of the opposition’s plans to work together to take power from the ANC in the upcoming elections.
The opposition parties have reportedly prioritized the removal of the ANC from power and have agreed to collaborate to achieve this goal. The ANC caucus is now faced with the challenge of strategizing on how to maintain power amidst growing opposition.
The ANC has been South Africa’s ruling political party since the country’s first democratic elections in 1994. However, in recent years, the party has been plagued by allegations of corruption and mismanagement, leading to a loss of public confidence and support.
As the ANC parliamentary lekgotla continues, many are watching to see how the party will respond to the growing threat of an opposition coalition and if they will be able to retain power in the upcoming general elections.
