ActionSA says it has resolved to close the door on the Economic Freedom Fighters'(EFF) coalition proposal.
The three Gauteng metros: Tshwane, Johannesburg and Ekurhuleni are among the 70 hung councils where coalitions talks between political parties are continuing.
Party leader Herman Mashaba, says they have been given a clear mandate by their supporters not under any circumstances to work with the African National Congress (ANC) and they close the door on the EFF because of its involvement with the ANC.
“On the basis of them asking us to bring the ANC behind the backdoor. The ANC has been rejected by the people of South Africa and ActionSA has always maintained that we will not work with the ANC. So, this bill, unfortunately, doesn’t make sense to them, it’s against what we stand for. We’re about service delivery to our people who rejected the ANC,” says Mashaba.
Power for the sake of power? No thanks.
Giving an entire municipality to a criminal syndicate and betraying voters? No thanks.
We would rather be in opposition than play a part in handing a municipality back to the ANC. https://t.co/XoXzF9M781
