The EFF on Sunday threatened to take the government to court unless the country’s “political space” was reopened.

In a statement on Sunday, the EFF said this reopening would allow all political parties to hold political gatherings, and physically attend municipal council, provincial legislature and parliamentary meetings.

Adding, they said events will be held with compliance to necessary health protocols to avoid the spread of coronavirus.

The statement continued that, if this wasn’t done, the party would consider going to court.

The EFF also said that it was important to allow political gatherings, with the country likely to hold local government elections before the end of November this year.
