It has proven beyond doubts that coalition Governments are now shifting the political landscape in South Africa. This comes with multijurisdictional challenges given varying political mandates. It becomes apparent that South Africa ‘unitarist’ constitution with profound federal characteristics opens constructive debate in the midst of intergovernmental relations and coalition governments. What if 2019 national elections and 2021 local elections intensify the reality of coalition governments? Listen to experts and practitioners at the coal face of what this means for actual democratic government and service delivery.
