Rustenburg council meeting
19 August 2016
While the ANC prepares to play the role of opposition in the Tshwane council, the DA's Solly Msimanga is expected to be elected mayor of Tshwane today.
He will likely do so thanks to an agreement by opposition parties to stick together and oust the ANC.
No party could manage to get a 50% majority during the August 3 local government elections, leaving the council hung.
Following talks between parties, the EFF agreed to vote with the DA, while the FF Plus, UDM, Cope, and ACDP signed a coalition agreement with it.
Msimanga said he was looking forward to the day and the work that lay ahead.
