Maimane is a peculiar person, Obama one day, Trump the next - Jessie Duarte

ANC deputy secretary-general, Jessie Duarte, speaks to 702's Azania Mosaka, at the National Results Operation Centre in Pretoria, and talks elections, results and lessons learned during the campaign.

She weighs in on the possibility of coalitions, as a number of highly contested metros hang in the balance.

Maimane is a peculiar person. I'm not sure one day if he is Barack Obama, or if he is Donald Trump. He seems to interchange his personalities to suit one or the other.

She says the ANC is not keen on forming coalitions following these elections.

If we have to have coalitions, then we would look for political parties closest to our ideological perspective.

We certainly don't think the DA can ever emulate the goals of the ANC.

She says coalitions are a tactical relationship, not a strategic marriage, and it is for a short period of time.

No one ever says they won't go into coalitions, no one ever says they will. We all keep you hanging in the balance until it is done.
