EFF and DA have burning desire to get ANC out

The City is expected to hold it's first council sitting where the mayor, chief whip and speaker of council will be officially sworn in.

Social and political commentator, Professor Tinyiko Maluleke, says the ANC's chances of retaining power in Johannesburg, is slim.

There has been intense lobbying up until this morning to get the smaller parties to vote with the DA. Between the DA and EFF, unless the EFF votes otherwise, I don't see how the ANC will keep Joburg.

Maluleke said the EFF has immense bargaining power against the DA and the EFF can force Herman Mashaba (DA's mayoral candidate to have a little bit of socialism.

It will be interesting to see how they force him to think of the poor and whether he will toe the line.

What the DA and EFF have in common is their burning desire to knock off the ANC from the driving seat.
