Democratic Alliance (DA) leader John Steenhuisen says saving the African National Congress (ANC) is not the responsibility of the country’s official opposition.
This comes amid some calls for the DA and the ANC to form stable coalitions in many of the 70 hung municipalities after the Local Government Elections.
The DA’s federal executive held a meeting at the weekend to discuss its approach to coalitions.
It says a focus for the party is that any coalition it enters must be stable and serve the people.
The party says service delivery must be a priority for any coalition agreement.
However, Steenhuisen says they will not enter coalitions with the EFF and the ANC.

Last week, Steenhuisen said he is not willing to go into unstable coalitions like the one they had in Tshwane in the last five years.
He said any party willing to work with them should agree to their coalition agreement and make it public.
