EFF will regret voting with DA if things go wrong - Parks Tau

Johannesburg – ANC mayoral candidate for Johannesburg Parks Tau says although he accepts the decision taken by the EFF to support a DA candidate, he believes the party made it in bad faith and will regret it if progress in the city stalls.

"You can't stand in front of people and say this guy has done a good job, the transformation process is on the right track, but because we have an axe to grind, we taking a decision against him."

Tau has already said he would accept the outcomes of Monday's sitting, after failing to get a clear majority in the local government elections – the ANC only managed to get 44.6% of the vote.

Tau said many people had approached him to point out that the decrease in the popularity of the ANC in the city was an indication of a loss of confidence in the party and not himself as an individual.
