Political analyst from the North West University, Professor Andre Duvenhage, is predicting that the voter turnout during this year’s election might be so low that it could force parties to enter into coalitions.

Duvenhage says, “I am not expecting on a national level a big coalition; we can expect coalition governments in the Western Cape as well as in Gauteng especially if the voter turnout is very low and then there is going to be coalition politics.”

This as some parts of the country are still experiencing service delivery protests where communities have indicated that they will boycott the elections.

Meanwhile, the ANC maintains that it will not go into any coalition as it has worked hard for an overwhelming victory.

In the North West province, the DA and EFF say they will work with other parties provided that their ideology is compatible.
