Deal reached between ANC and AIC in principle

The African Independent Congress (AIC) has agreed in principle to enter into coalitions with the ANC in Ekurhuleni, the City of Johannesburg, Nelson Mandela Bay and in Rustenburg.

However, this is unlikely to give the ANC a comfortable lead in any of the municipalities, but would be a start. Coalition talks are still ongoing and very few partnerships have been finalised to date.

AIC president Mandla Galo said the party met ANC secretary-general Gwede Mantashe, treasurer Zweli Mkhize and head of policy Jeff Radebe in Pretoria on Sunday.

Galo says they have met with lawyers and the deal will go ahead as long as the ANC keeps their side of the bargain.
