South Africa’s President Cyril Ramaphosa has unveiled a new coalition government

South Africa’s President Cyril Ramaphosa has unveiled a new coalition government, after his ruling African National Congress (ANC) party lost its parliamentary majority in May’s elections.

He said that “the government of national unity is unprecedented in the history of our democracy”.
The ANC will have 20 out of 32 cabinet posts, while the Democratic Alliance (DA) – until now the main opposition party – will hold six. Six other portfolios are shared amongst smaller parties.

The shrinking of ANC support in the elections reflected public frustration over its poor record on delivering basic services and tackling unemployment, poverty and corruption.

The ANC under Nelson Mandela achieved its aim of ending white-minority rule in South Africa in 1994.
