SA parties sign pact to unseat ruling ANC

SOUTH AFRICA: An alliance of seven political parties in South Africa has signed a pact in a bid to unseat the governing African National Congress (ANC) in the 2024 election.

The Multi-Party Charter for South Africa said if they came to power, they would work together and allocate ministerial positions and parliamentary seats.

They are also seeking to keep Julius Malema’s Economic Freedom Fighters party from being voted into power.

The agreement comes as the country battles an ailing economy, corruption, unemployment and an unprecedented energy crisis.

Analysts say the ANC risks losing its parliamentary majority for the first time since South Africa’s return to democracy in 1994.

The new bloc, however, has not decided who’ll be elected president if it’s successful in the election.
