The DA reminds the EFF ahead of its upcoming campaign event in Johannesburg on Sunday, that the legal limit for outdoor gatherings is 500 persons.

The DA reminds the EFF that any attendance in excess of 500 people outdoors will be illegal.

We say specifically to Mr Malema: You cannot hold an illegal rally in this election, and the legal limit is 500 persons.

The rules of lockdown by which we are all forced to live, have seen devastating abuses of power by the ANC government, leading to losses of life, serious assaults, victimization and destruction of the economy – but, there cannot be one set of rules for all citizens and another for the EFF.

Therefore, at Sunday’s event, 500 people maximum shall be allowed, or the entire event will be illegal.

Holding illegal events during a campaign period would undermine the freeness and fairness of the election, and would open the door to the EFF being barred from contesting this election.

An illegal campaign event, if the EFF exceeds 500 persons on Sunday, would result in criminal and electoral consequences.

In contrast, the DA’s Manifesto Launch on Saturday 25 September at 11:00 am will be fully compliant with the regulations as we abide by the rule of law.

 

Issued by Chief Whip of the Official Opposition, Natasha Mazzone MP
