POLL: What do you think about potential coalition partners for the MK Party in KZN?

According to News24, Duduzile Zuma-Sambudla, daughter of former president Jacob Zuma and leader of the uMkhonto weSizwe (MK) Party, has ruled out a coalition with the ANC in KwaZulu-Natal. She stated that her father, leading the MK Party, is open to collaborating with “progressive black parties,” excluding the ANC led by President Cyril Ramaphosa. Zuma-Sambudla hinted at a potential collaboration with the EFF but remained non-committal about the possibility of working with the IFP, a significant contender in the province. The IFP, part of the Multi-Party Charter along with the DA and other smaller parties, already cooperates with the DA in several KZN municipalities.

Despite being relatively new, the MK Party has seen impressive electoral results, aligning with their prior efforts. While final decisions on potential alliances lie with former president Zuma, who is expected to visit the Electoral Commission of South Africa’s results centre soon, projections suggest a significant shift in KZN politics. News24 projections indicate the ANC may lose its majority in the province, possibly leading to national repercussions as support for the ANC appears to have declined across all provinces.
