The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) says it will use its third plenum this weekend to discuss whether it was a good move to vote for certain parties to give them power to govern some municipalities and whether this will be something it will do again in future elections.
The EFF says one of the key plans moving forward is to strengthen its presence in KwaZulu-Natal, the Eastern Cape and Gauteng.
The party is hosting its third plenum in Kempton Park this weekend which kicked off on Friday.
About 260 national, provincial and regional leaders will take part in the strategy session where the party is discussing its plans for the year as well as the 2019 elections.
Deputy President of the EFF Floyd Shivambu says while the party voted in favour of various parties and civic organisations in the 2016 local government elections, he says the merits of the decision will be discussed.
“That’s under constant review, we’ll see whether that strategy is working for us and if not we’ll then discuss what's the next step.”
Shivambu says part of the plenum will include discussing lessons learnt from last year’s elections.
He says the African National Congress is no longer a viable option for black supporters and the EFF is the only real option for black people.
