New Coalition Government Marks South Africa’s Political Shift

South Africa’s newly formed coalition government, led by President Cyril Ramaphosa’s African National Congress (ANC), represents a significant political shift after decades of ANC dominance. With the ANC securing 20 out of 32 Cabinet Minister roles, including key positions, the coalition also includes six Ministers from the Democratic Alliance (DA) and representatives from smaller parties.

This multi-party arrangement follows the ANC’s loss of parliamentary majority in recent elections, prompting the need for coalition partnerships to govern effectively. The coalition government aims to address pressing issues such as poverty, inequality, and unemployment, reflecting a cooperative approach to governance amid diverse political landscapes.
