Cape Town: The leader of South Africa’s second biggest party said Friday it will back Cyril Ramaphosa for president, almost guaranteeing he will be re-elected in parliament for a second term. Democratic Alliance leader John Steenhuisen said his party had now formally signed a coalition agreement with African National Congress, and part of the agreement is Ramaphosa will be president.
Lawmakers are due to elect a president later on Friday and the ANC and DA together have a majority of lawmakers that would see Ramaphosa return for a second term.If Ramaphosa is the only candidate nominated, he would be elected automatically without the need for a vote.
Steenhuisen said the DA was now preparing to co-govern alongside the ANC.
