JOHANNESBURG - With coalition negotiations expected to reach their final stages soon the United Democratic Movement (UDM) believes a multi-party government will significantly reduce the levels of corruption.

The party confirmed that it met with the African National Congress earlier this week, to discuss its role in the proposed Government of National Unity.

The organisation is one of six parties that have called for Chief Justice Raymond Zondo to chair a dialogue on coalition regulations.

UDM Spokesperson Andile Jabavu said that while the party remains in support of a unity government, regulatory mechanisms need to be adopted urgently.

 "That's why it's necessary for us to become part of this whole coalition thing. It's a thing of trying to make sure that we end corruption because there are policies in place of how things are supposed to be done but it's just that at times leaders were very corrupt."
