The Independent Democrats have granted their leaders the go-ahead to pursue unity agreements with other opposition parties. The ID will decide within the next six months whether to sign such agreements.
The ID conference in Cape Town was addressed by ID leader Patricia De Lille, DA leader Helen Zille, Cope president Mosiuoa Lekota, and United Democratic Movement deputy president Ntopile Kganyago.
Zille said the differences between the parties were minor and should not prevent them from joining hands to save the South African democracy.
