Joint Voter Registration Drive of The Multi-Party Charter for South Africa

Feb 1, 2024 | Press Releases

Good morning Johannesburg!

Today, you are exactly where you need to be. You need to hear this message.

As the President of the IFP, I join my voice with my colleagues in the Multi-Party Charter. We represent the strongest voices in the opposition, and we are speaking as one.

We believe that South Africa can secure change for the better. And we believe it can be done now. 2024 is the moment for South Africans to fundamentally change the trajectory of our country, by unseating a failed government and empowering a new leadership.

For the first time in 30 years, since the 1994 elections, the ruling Party is likely to lose the majority. If that happens, a coalition of opposition parties stands ready to form a new government. We have not linked up randomly, but have carefully chosen the people we will work with, ensuring that the Government we form is underpinned by values, principles and solutions that the IFP champions.

It goes without saying that we all want change. South Africa is riddled with crises and corruption. The pain we all endure is greater by far for the youth. It is you that suffer the most. A failing education system bars you from developing your potential. A failing economy keeps you from finding work. A failing government withholds control of security and happiness.

Quite clearly, change is needed. But not every party contesting this election can bring change. The power behind each of the parties in the Multi-Party Charter is the fact that, together, we can form a government. Instead of just talking on the sidelines, we are able to get in the game, take the ball, and run with it.

I am proud of the IFP’s track record of good governance. The IFP will bring integrity to a coalition government.

The IFP Youth Brigade is driving a powerful mission to ensure that young people secure this change. I gladly give the stage to Ms Dalsy Manganyi, Gauteng Chairperson of the IFP Youth Brigade, so that she can tell you how.
