Johannesburg - The EFF will not go into coalitions with other parties, but would look at getting into what its leader Julius Malema called "contractual relationships".

Speaking at the Daily Maverick Gathering in Midrand, Johannesburg on Thursday, Malema said he would support anyone who advanced the national interest.

"Whoever wants the votes of the EFF will have to come and bring us a yearly contract which stipulates what people are going to benefit that year [and] by when, and then if those are not met the relationship is automatically off," he said.

He said if the EFF went into this contractual relationship with another party and it did not deliver within a year, it would then "end the relationship".

Next year's local government elections is expected be the fight for the country's metros, which included Johannesburg, Tshwane, Ekurhuleni and Nelson Mandela Bay.

Malema said the Economic Freedom Fighters were preparing for the local government elections by going out into the communities, so that when it won some of the municipalities it would know what the people want.

He said if other parties were not committed to delivering, then the EFF would rather not engage in any form of relationship with them.

"Our people are tired of being fed theory which lacks practice."

"They've had to listen to theory for 21 years - they all know how slogans sound like. All they want now is action."
