Western Cape political parties at loggerheads
By Megan Hartogh
With the municipal elections exactly three months away, the two major parties in the Western Cape find themselves having to deal with infighting. The ANC have openly shown the rifts within the party, when they recently engaged in a "verbal sparring" match with the SACP. According to senior members of the Democratic Alliance, their party’s rifts are due to competition for the top twenty positions on the party’s representation list. Compared to the ANC however, the DA has opted to remain silent about their differences, which they have termed "internal matters" as they believe it would not be right so close to elections.
