EFF to hold manifesto consultation assemblies with potential voters

Published on

The party announced that it would be starting consultations on Thursday, 15 November 2018 in Soweto.

The Economic Freedom Fighters will start its manifesto consultation assemblies with different constituencies across the country.

This comes just months before South Africa’s national elections.

The red berets’ key focus will be consulting with what the party terms the working class, which includes farm workers, mine workers, petrol attendants, security guards and domestic workers.

“The meetings will be attended by EFF officials, Central Command Team members, as well as Members of Parliament and Provincial Legislators who will listen to the people and take note to inform the manifesto drafting process of the EFF,” the party said in a statement on Monday, 12 November 2018.

The consultations will start in Soweto and will then move to the Northern Cape, Free State, KwaZulu-Natal, Eastern Cape, North West and Limpopo.

The party’s 2016 municipal elections manifesto titled “Our last hope for service delivery” focused on the betterment of the working class, nationalisation, land reform and education.

At the time, EFF Commander in Chief, Julius Malema, said the party would focus on “mass organisation and activism, superior logic and taking the people along”.

“The EFF will never forcefully impose its programme on the majority against their will, and will practically and physically resist any political party, movement and individual who imposes their narrow wishes on the majority,” he added.
