Pretoria - EFF supporters sang and danced as a branded truck drove into the Electoral Commission of SA's (IEC) parking lot in Centurion, south of Pretoria, on Wednesday.

A scuffle broke out between police and Economic Freedom Fighters members outside the IEC offices as party leader Julius Malema and Dali Mpofu arrived.

Malema, wearing a red EFF overall and beret, was at the IEC office to hand in the party's candidate lists and deposit a cheque to contest the May 7 elections. Mpofu, in a black suit and red tie, also sported a red EFF beret.

Malema and Mpofu walked into the IEC office carrying three large cardboard boxes.

Police backed off and EFF members continued to sing and dance. Malema is expected to address them when he comes out of the IEC office.
