With the inclusion of the UDM, the GNU now comprises eight political parties. Apart from the ANC and UDM, the other parties are the Democratic Alliance (DA), Inkatha Freedom Party (IFP), Patriotic Alliance (PA), Pan Africanist Congress of Azania (PAC), Good Party, and Freedom Front Plus (FF Plus).

This diverse coalition aims to bring together different political ideologies and work collectively for the nation’s benefit.

The next steps involve detailed discussions among the participating parties to finalize the operational framework of the GNU. Once an agreement is reached, it will be signed by all parties, and the public will be informed about the structure and functioning of the GNU. This collaborative effort is expected to foster stability and unity within the political landscape.
