Parties campaign on Workers' Day

2014-05-01 07:45

Johannesburg - The 7 May general elections looms less than a week away on Thursday, with political parties seeking to maximise the remaining time they have left to leave a lasting impression with voters.

The African National Congress will be holding a number of Workers' Day rallies across the country on Thursday, with President Jacob Zuma expected to address a rally in Polokwane.

Mineral Resources Minister Susan Shabangu will address a rally in Dundee, ANC secretary general Gwede Mantashe will be in Ulundi, while deputy president Cyril Ramaphosa will be found addressing a rally in Pampierstad.

Parties hoping to make inroads into the ANC's support base next week will also be campaigning on 1 May, with Economic Freedom Fighters leader Julius Malema expected to speak at a National Council of Trade Unions rally in Emalahleni.

Democratic Alliance leader Helen Zille will be speaking at a rally in Kimberley, while NFP leader Zanele Magwaza Msibi will be speaking at a prayer service for peaceful elections in Durban.
