Multi-party Charter to Declare Its Approach to Ending Rolling Blackouts and Achieving Energy Security

Feb 27, 2024 | Press Releases

Joint Media Advisory by the DA, IFP, FF Plus, ActionSA, ACDP, ISANCO, UIM, SNP, UCDP, Ekhethu and UNP

On Wednesday 28 February 2024 the eleven parties of the Multi-Party Charter For South Africa will host a press conference to set out how a Charter Government will end rolling blackouts and achieve energy security.

South Africa’s energy crisis is the direct result of three decades of poor policy decisions, lack of planning, corruption and mismanagement of Eskom by the ruling Party. This is a crisis that must be solved immediately by an alternative government with the skill, political will and integrity to fix it. The Multi-Party Charter has engaged experts and capitalised on its governance experience to map a way forward that will relieve our country of the economic disaster that is loadshedding. Our three-pronged approach to ending loadshedding and securing our country’s energy future will be unveiled to the electorate through this press conference.

Members of the media are invited to join us. Party leaders will be available for interviews and photographs.
