Motion divides DA, EFF

- Siyabonga Mkhwanazi

THE RIFT between the DA and EFF over the motion to dissolve Parliament was unlikely to lead to the two parties cutting ties and handing over power back to the ANC in the country’s crucial metros.

An analyst said yesterday the DA and EFF were bound not to agree on the matter. This comes as Parliament said no date had been set for the motion to be tabled in the House.

Professor Dirk Kotze of Unisa said, “They have common understand­ing that they will vote together on certain issues.” Kotze said the new motion by the DA to dissolve Parliament was trying to unseat the ANC and that is where it disagrees with the EFF. DA spokespers­on Phumzile van Damme urged the EFF to support the motion.

EFF spokespers­on Mbuyiseni Ndlozi could not be reached for comment.
