EFF will make ‘a lot of noise’

2014-05-09 14:02

Pretoria – The Economic Freedom Fighters are “extremely excited” about reaching the milestone of one million votes in the 2014 elections.

EFF North West provincial chairperson Alfred Motsi said when the party reached the 1 million  mark he “nearly celebrated”, but then he thought about the poor communities and mineworkers that voted for the EFF, and those that had expected the party to lead them in the platinum province.

“They wanted to see change,” Motsi told News24. Watch.

Now that the EFF is the official opposition in the North West, the party will “make a lot of noise”, he said.

Motsi added that the EFF will call on supporters to stop protesting, and rather to come to the EFF with their grievances, so that the party can take up their issues in the legislature.

According to results early on Friday afternoon, the EFF was in third place nationally with 1.1m votes. The new party cracked one million votes shortly after 07:00 on Friday morning, meaning it would secure in the region of 20 seats in Parliament.
