The EFF says it is unapologetic about its stance on media publication, the Daily Maverick, and that the South African National Editors’ Forum can go ahead and write to Parliament should it wish to.

Speaking at the second media briefing held at the Nasrec Expo Centre on Friday, where the party's second National People's Assembly will be held throughout the long weekend, deputy president Floyd Shivambu said there was nothing out of the ordinary in what they had done by blocking certain media from covering the event. He said the party would deal with any complaints when they reached Parliament when it is back in session in February.
