IFP: Elections 2024 and the Future of South Africa

Jun 3, 2024 | Press Releases

The National Executive Committee (NEC) of the IFP met in Midrand on Sunday 2 June 2024 to deliberate on the results of the 2024 National and Provincial Elections and to consider the way forward.

We are humbled by the support we received as voters expressed their trust in the IFP. We thank our members, supporters, volunteers, and every single South African, who came out in their numbers to exercise their democratic right to vote on 29 May 2024.

The IFP accepts the results of the 2024 National and Provincial Elections as the democratic will of the people.

It is instructive that the IFP has emerged from the 2024 elections stronger than before. Our support has grown both nationally and in the province of KwaZulu-Natal.

This stands in stark relief to the decimation faced by many other parties, who have seen an overall reduction of their seats in the National Assembly and legislatures.

With this remarkable electoral support, the IFP will engage the process of coalition negotiations, which are now a necessary factor in the governance of South Africa.

To this end, the NEC has established a 7-Member NEC Task Team led by IFP Deputy President, Inkosi Mzamo Buthelezi, to facilitate all coalition-related matters, including engaging with other parties.

As we committed to do throughout this campaign, the IFP is putting South Africa first. We will continue to honour our Founder, the late Prince Mangosuthu Buthelezi, by being a voice of reason and a constructive force in politics.

The IFP stands ready to rebuild South Africa.
