Breaking News: Secret Deal Between DA and Ramaphosa to Form Informal Coalition

In a shocking turn of events, a covert agreement between the Democratic Alliance (DA) and ANC President Cyril Ramaphosa has been revealed, aiming to form an informal coalition following the 2024 elections.

With the ANC securing just over 40% of the vote, a formal coalition with the DA could be politically damaging for both parties.

According to confidential sources within the DA, the alleged agreement involves the DA supporting the ANC in forming a government and working together in parliament on critical matters.

Ramaphosa will be re-elected as President, Paul Mashatile will be appointed as Deputy President, and the ANC will retain all ministerial and deputy ministerial positions.

The DA will assume the role of Speaker of the National Assembly, hold the chairmanship of the National Council of Provinces (NCOP), and control the majority of the portfolio committees.

The most explosive part of this agreement allegedly involves a series of political maneuvers aimed at securing DA support, including the arrest of Deputy President

Paul Mashatile on corruption charges within three months and the neutralization of ANC Chairperson Gwede Mantashe and other NEC members opposed to the coalition using the BOSASA corruption scandal.

The informal coalition is designed to avoid backlash from their respective bases, framing it as an operational agreement to ensure stable governance.

Sources claim that Ramaphosa is determined to keep the EFF and MK Party out of the picture, and this arrangement suits both the ANC and the DA, giving them key oversight positions to consolidate power.

This developing story reveals a complex web of political negotiations aimed at maintaining stability and preventing radical policies from gaining traction in national and provincial governments. As both parties meet to discuss coalition talks formally, the pressure is on to secure a deal that benefits all involved.
