NFP Joins ANC, DA, and IFP in Government of National Unity

In a significant political development, National Freedom Party (NFP) leader Ivan Barnes, along with the party’s leadership, held a press briefing in Umhlanga on Thursday. During the event, Barnes announced that the NFP “supports and prescribes” to the Government of National Unity (GNU).

Barnes emphasized that the core agreement for joining the GNU was to prioritize service delivery. This move by the NFP has significantly impacted former president Jacob Zuma’s MK Party, which despite receiving the most votes in KwaZulu-Natalβ€”45% of the electorateβ€”now faces challenges in governing the province.

At the briefing, Barnes expressed the party’s motivation, highlighting the constructive dialogues they had with the African National Congress (ANC) and other political entities.

“The spirit of partnership and the maturity that have characterised negotiations are a source of inspirations for millions of people,”

he stated.

In KwaZulu-Natal, a party requires at least 41 seats to govern. The NFP’s decision to join the GNU reshapes the political landscape, making it harder for any single party to dominate without coalition support.

This move by the NFP indicates a strategic shift towards collaborative governance, underscoring the importance of unity and effective service delivery in the region.
