'We're not going to work with the ANC', says EFF's Ndlozi

The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) has stated categorically that it will not pursue a coalition with the African National Congress (ANC) once the 2016 municipal elections results are confirmed.

In an interview with Azania Mosaka at the National Results Centre in Pretoria, the opposition party's national spokesperson Mbuyiseni Ndlozi said a coalition with the governing party would 'bring them back in through the back door'.

Ndlozi went further to highlight the EFF's progress since it was founded in 2013 by former ANC Youth League president, Julius Malema. The new entrants managed to secure 25 seats in Parliament at the 2014 national elections. It is contesting in the local government elections for the first time.

Listen to the interview below:

We're not going to work with the ANC. That's the government of the day, that's who the people are rejecting. So you can't bring them back through the back door.

Mbuyiseni Ndlozi, EFF national spokesperson

We make no apology that we're representing the interests of the working class, particularly black poor people... but a coalition must not include the ANC.

Mbuyiseni Ndlozi, EFF national spokesperson
