Fake News on IFP Coalition Talks

Jun 3, 2024 | Press Releases

We note reports circulating from an unofficial news source, that the IFP has closed the door on certain political parties, as the IFP embarks on coalition talks.

It is regrettable that such fake news would be circulating when the IFP issued a formal statement on our approach to coalition talks, just this morning.

Our statement this morning affirmed that the IFP remains open to engaging all political players.

We ask the media and other observers not to jump the gun, or to make unsubstantiated conclusions.

Mr Narend Singh, the IFP’s Treasurer-General, believes that the report is a gross misinterpretation of statements he made on live TV on Sunday evening.

We plead that the media and public at large, wait for the IFP to formally communicate our next steps.

Calmness and maturity will be needed from all of us in order to reach the best possible outcome for South Africa and its people.
