In a significant political development, the leader of South Africa’s second-largest party has announced support for Cyril Ramaphosa’s bid for a second term as president. This endorsement from the Democratic Alliance (DA) nearly guarantees Ramaphosa’s re-election when Parliament votes later today.

John Steenhuisen, the leader of the DA, revealed that his party has formally entered into a coalition agreement with Ramaphosa’s African National Congress (ANC). A crucial element of this agreement is the DA’s support for Ramaphosa’s presidency.

The South African Parliament is scheduled to elect a president later on Friday. With the combined majority of the ANC and the DA, Ramaphosa’s re-election appears assured. Should Ramaphosa emerge as the sole nominee for the presidency, he would automatically secure the position without the necessity of a vote.

This coalition marks a pivotal moment in South African politics, as it brings together two major political forces in the country. The collaboration between the ANC and DA reflects a strategic alignment aimed at ensuring stable governance under Ramaphosa’s leadership.

As lawmakers prepare for the election, the political landscape is set for continuity with Ramaphosa at the helm, bolstered by the newfound coalition. The partnership underscores a collective commitment to steering South Africa through its current challenges and towards a more unified future.
