EFF president Julius Malema says the party’s central command team which met over the weekend has resolved to do a thorough review of all its elected councillors.
He said all proportional representative (PR) councillors who came from wards which received less than 100 votes will be instructed to withdraw from councils and would be replaced by ward candidates where the party received most votes.
“This principle is aimed primarily at awarding those who worked for the organisation tirelessly‚ and also to avoiding a situation where mediocrity is rewarded‚” he said.
Malema said going forward the EFF will apply the same principle during the national general elections in 2019.
Members of higher structures of the party would be on the list based on how they perform in their respective constituencies.
