Rustenburg - Farm workers will be able to vote in the national election, North West premier Thandi Modise said in Rustenburg on Thursday.

“We have engaged farmers to allow farm workers and dwellers to vote. If they do not we told them we will act,” she said a Congress of SA Trade Unions' May Day rally.

“We want to appeal to big business to allow the workers to exercise their hard-fought right to vote.”

She said workers' rights in the Rustenburg area were being violated.

“We have observed that hard-won rights are violated day in and day out in this region.”

No organisation or political party should stop workers from going to work or vote. - Sapa
