JOHANNESBURG - Both United Democratic Movement (UDM) President Bantu Holomisa and Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Malema say they agree with Democratic Alliance (DA) leader Helen Zille that the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) is in danger of becoming an African National Congress (ANC) lapdog.
Zille made the claim in her online newsletter on Monday.
Holomisa says he's been banging this drum for a while.
"We welcome Helen Zille into the club. They have long been resisting this when we told them that the IEC is not free."
But Malema is a little less diplomatic.
He says, "Now, at least she can smell the coffee, that the IEC is gradually being reduced into the sub-community of the ANC."
The IEC says it will respond later today and the ANC says these parties didn't lodge complaints after this year's elections.
