Johannesburg - The DA and the EFF on Wednesday denied reports of a possible coalition between them after the 7 May elections.
Democratic Alliance leader Helen Zille said a coalition with the Economic Freedom Fighters would be unworkable because of ideological differences.
“I have always made it quite clear that we will only form coalitions where it is possible to form a coherent government and implement our policy commitments to the public. This would be impossible with the EFF,” she said in a statement.
EFF leader Julius Malema (pictured) said his party was not in talks with any other political party about coalitions.
“These reports must be dismissed as mere desperate speculations in an attempt to defocus the EFF’s objective of taking government, particularly in Gauteng,” he said.
The two parties in Gauteng were reportedly considering a coalition in the province. Both parties are determined to win Gauteng from the African National Congress on 7 May.
DA Gauteng premier candidate Mmusi Maimane and EFF premier candidate Dali Mpofu have been campaigning for votes all around the province.
