The Democratic Alliance (DA) rejected a deal proposed by opposition parties on Saturday that would have re-elected ActionSA leader Herman Mashaba as mayor of Johannesburg.

The U-turn comes after the party’s federal executive met to discuss coalition agreements for Tshwane, Nelson Mandela Bay Metro, and Joburg. The DA has stated that it will not be a part of any ‘chaotic’ coalitions that rely on economic freedom fighters to stay in power.

Several opposition parties, including the ACDP, UDM, ActionSA, Cope, and Freedom Front Plus, issued a statement on Friday indicating that the DA will lead a coalition in Tshwane, while ActionSA will lead in Joburg.

The DA, on the other hand, has decided to run its own mayoral candidate in the city of gold, stating that it will not support Mashaba for mayor because he is dependent on the EFF’s support.
