SABC predicts 23 EFF seats

2014-05-09 07:11
Johannesburg - The EFF could secure 23 seats in Parliament in its debut election, according to the latest SABC predictions on Thursday night.

This would see the Economic Freedom Fighters get nearly three times the number of Inkatha Freedom Party seats, nine according to the SABC, down from 18.

The African National Congress would lose three seats to settle at 261, while the Democratic Alliance would hold 90, 23 more than it secured in the 2009 general elections.

The SABC foresaw the National Freedom Party, which did not contest the last elections, securing seven parliamentary seats.
