Johannesburg - The May 7 general elections looms less than a week a way on Thursday, with political parties seeking to maximise the remaining time they have left to leave a lasting impression with voters.

The African National Congress will be holding a number of Workers Day rallies across the country on Thursday, with President Jacob Zuma expected to address a rally in Polokwane.

Mineral Resources Minister Susan Shabangu will address a rally in Dundee, ANC secretary general Gwede Mantashe will be in Ulundi, while deputy president Cyril Ramaphosa will be found addressing a rally in Pampierstad.

Parties hoping to make inroads into the ANC's support base next week will also be campaigning on May 1, with Economic Freedom Fighters leader Julius Malema expected to speak at a National Council of Trade Unions rally in Emalahleni.

Democratic Alliance leader Helen Zille will be speaking at a rally in Kimberley, while NFP leader Zanele KaMagwaza Msibi will be speaking at a prayer service for peaceful elections in Durban. - Sapa
