'Do not underestimate the negative effect of EFF returning to ANC'

Political Analyst Daniel Silke says within the next year there will not be a move to reunite the ANC and the EFF.

Speaking to Ray White on The Midday report, Silke says it is possible that should the EFF perform poorly in the 2019 general elections, it might re-align with the ANC.

If the ANC can become the leaders on the land issue and can put forward a coherent policy on land; then indeed this can affect the EFF.

If the EFF does poorly in the elections next year, they may as well not have many options in future other than to realign themselves with the ANC. But for the moment in the short term narrow both opposition parties UDM and the EFF will remain independent.
