Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Malema has addressed the media and EFF supporters right after casting his ballot at Mponegele Primary School in Polokwane.
He has cautioned against any potential of the EFF entering into a coalition, stating that the party would need a decisive majority in order to effectively lead.
“We want to govern South Africa without coalitions because coalitions force us to choose between devils. You look at which one is the better devil. You are caught between a rock and a hard place. And whatever decision you make it will not satisfy everyone. If South Africans want the EFF to lead, they must give it a decisive majority.”
Malema adds that he does not take his voting right for granted.
“I feel very good. I feel very proud of myself that I am not like the rest who take for granted this voting. It is very important and I am happy that I can exercise this right. Many generations before me were denied this opportunity.”
