DA: EFF will not blindly support us in hung metros

The EFF has not committed to unconditional loyalty, but will support the DA in hung metros on an issue by issue basis, explains DA Federal Executive Chairperson James Selfe.

The EFF announced that it would not be entering into coalition government with either the DA or ANC, but would vote with the DA in Nelson Mandela Bay, Johannesburg, Tshwane and Ekurhuleni.

In Johannesburg, the DA holds at least 110 councilor seats and the EFF has approximately 30, which would give the two opposition parties the power of majority in council meetings.

With everybody together we would command a majority.

James Selfe, DA Federal Executive Chairperson

Selfe says that the two parties have put in place measures to address eventualities such as disputes and disagreements over certain municipal matters.

Meanwhile, the DA will not rely solely on the EFF's support in Nelson Mandela Bay where it has formed a coalition government with several smaller parties including the UDM, FFP, COPE, ACDP and the IFP.
