Pannal: EFF, DA have same aims for Mogale City
Lynn Pannal’s election to the position of mayor was supported by EFF.
JOHANNESBURG - The Democratic Alliance's (DA) new mayor in Mogale City, Lynn Pannal, says she believes the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) voted for her in yesterday's council meeting because they simply have the same aims.
Yesterday votes from the DA, the EFF, the Inkatha Freedom Party and the Freedom Front Plus saw her being elected mayor in the council.
But elections held during the same sitting saw the speaker and the chief whip coming from the African National Congress.
Pannal says she completely understands why the EFF backed her.
"I think to produce the goods and to optimise service delivery, sometimes you have to resort to things like that; and I do think we had a common goal, in that that is their goal as well."
