JOHANNESBURG - The United Democratic Movement (UDM) says it is confident it will win some areas around the country, and if they are approached by the African National Congress (ANC) or the Democratic Alliance, they are not willing to form coalitions.

UDM leader Bantu Holomisa says the party has done the best that it can to prepare for Wednesday, considering its limited budget.

Holomisa says they have been used in the past by the bigger parties to form, what seemed like coalitions, but were later excluded from all decision-making.

The politician says the UDM is confident ahead of Wednesday's polls.

He says ANC ministers have failed to better the lives of South Africans, and continue to shift the blame to the ward councillors.

The party says it expects South Africans to show their dissatisfaction at the polls and vote for the party, which will put their needs first.
