Small political parties must close up shop in the current political situation

2016-06-08 06:00

MY assessment of the political situation is that the small political parties must close up shop.

The contest in the local government elections will be a three-horse race between the ANC, DA and EFF. These parties have picked themselves as those that deserve our votes.

In recent times many small political parties have mushroomed and made promises, knowing they lack the capacity to deliver. The game is up now and they have overstayed their welcome.

Voting for them will be throwing away votes.

The ANC’s advantage is that it enjoys a strong bond with the poor and downtrodden. It also boasts a credible history of service to the people since 1912.

Its commitment to the development of this country is unquestionable.

The DA, on other hand, is viewed as an elitist party.

It has so far failed to win the hearts of the masses.

It has also annoyed many people for always going to the courts to complain about the government. They view the DA’s actions as attempts to rule this country through unfair means.

Judging by the way in which the EFF behaves in Parliament, it seems that people, who are anarchists, will vote for it. If the EFF manages to win one city, it will be interesting to see how a city of anarchists functions.
