Election results: South African May 2024

I really hope something good happens in these 4 years. Because we know zuma will die soon and then those morons will go back to voting anc
 
That's probably the structure of the agreement. DA will get deputy speaker, ANC will get speaker, ANC/IFP will get president/premier...
It's about seeing the bigger picture, they already have a whole province to themselves so they aren't too desperate, fighting until the bitter end for high positions was never going to help them, at worst it would simply have made a strong case for the ANC and EFF coalition.

This way they keep what they had and get more positions, it's a win win, obviously those who thought this was a chance for them to have the ANC by the balls will be slightly disappointed, but that's politics for you, win some and lose some.

Both parties have each other by the balls, it's a mutually beneficial reach around basicallym

The DA have been very subued through all of this. I was worried that they'd get dragged into the social media mudslinging because they are prone to being morons on social media, but they have been very quiet and judging by the final outcome, they just went about business in a pragmatic fashion. ANC to their credit, haven't made too much noise either.

All-in-all, likely the best outcome we could have hoped for.
 
Righto, so Thoko Didiza is Speaker (ANC) - 284 votes so clearly supported by the DA
