MINORITY FRONT MANIFESTO – 2014
WELCOME TO THE MF “ONE VISION, ONE FUTURE”

1. MF VISION

The MF stands for meaningful co-operation.
We strongly believe that tolerance leads to peaceful co-existence. Our long-term vision is to ensure that a Ministry for Minorities and a Minority Commission are established, addressing the unique needs of minorities all over S.A.

2. MISSION STATEMENT

The Minority Front is a socio-political party with a purpose to participate within the true principles of democracy.

The Minority Front (MF) wants, not only to receive benefits from South Africa, but to work for them. Twenty years into democracy affirmative action should be scrapped, because sound economic and political justice is ensured through equal opportunities for all.

The MF believes that equality is the mother of justice and must be exercised unconditionally, irrespective of race, class, creed, age, gender and status.

Superficial use of pro-human rights I n the constitution must be avoided at all costs by leaders in our country, therefore we strongly reject the use of race tokenism to manipulate the economical, socio-cultural and political system.

3. THE MF LOGO

SMALL MINORITY FRONT OFFICIAL HI RES LOGO
Our vibrant colours signify:
RED Strength & Vitality
GREEN Balance & Harmony
BLUE Protection & Inspiration
TIGER Mr A. Rajbansi was commonly known as the “Bengal Tiger”. He was a fighter to the end. Strong, tenacious with an acute long term vision for the MF.
Mrs S. Thakur-Rajbansi is a Tigress who will accomplish the MF objectives

4. OBJECTIVES FOR THE NEXT 5 YEAR TERM

To ensure government establishes a:
1. Ministry for Minorities
2. Commission for Minorities

5. MF PRINCIPAL

The protection of minorities and groups is always built on one principal: “the absence of discrimination and inequality”. We seek co-operation between races so that we can build a sense of lasting unity in diversity in South Africa.

6. EFFECTIVENESS OF MINORITES

1. Minority votes can hold the balance of power by having your own, true voice, in parliament.
2. Minority rights are human rights that are internationally entrenched by various declarations and conventions, therefore minorities have nothing to fear. All they need to have is good, strong leadership.

7. RELEVANCE OF A MINORITY MOVEMENT TO THE NEW S.A.

We who have lived in the old S.A. and now in the new S.A. need to educate our children about history and revise our knowledge on minority groups along with that of the majority. This would certainly change attitudes and bring about social cohesion and nation-building.

8. WHY IS THE MF DISTINCT FROM OTHER PARTIES

1. The MF skilfully negotiates for the people we serve, using quiet diplomacy
2. The MF does not promote any group along ethnic or other lines, but if anyone is prejudiced or disadvantaged because he or she belongs to a particular group, it is the policy of the MF to oppose such unfair action.
9. WHY VOTE MF

1. The MF in keeping with the legacy of our late leader, Mr A. Rajbansi (Bengal Tiger), will fearlessly, voice your concerns at all government levels making you the people, a powerful minority within the majority, capable of holding the balance of power.
2. The power and effectiveness of minorities lies in their united vote which will strengthen our fight to bring about true justice and equality for all.
3. People will only vote for a party capable of expressing their concerns.
4. South Africans are looking to a “strong leader” compared to “democracy is always best”. Mr Rajbansi was one of S.A. most tenacious, resilient politicians known as a “Political survivor”, but the new leader, Mrs Shameen Thakur-Rajbansi is a “Tigress” in her own right.
5. Minority movements are an international phenomenon and it is a known fact that the success of any democracy is dependent on the manner in which its minority communities are accommodated.

FFP 2014 Manifesto South Africa

http://www.vfplus.org.za/2014-election-manifesto

MANIFESTO OF THE FF PLUS FOR THE ELECTION OF 2014
A. Introduction and Background: The South Africa of 2014

1. It is time:

The FF Plus believes it is time for a better new South Africa. The ‘New South Africa’ of 1994 has failed and has become an old South Africa. The recipe for nation building in the past 20 years since 1994 has not worked. We dream of a truly New South Africa which is to the advantage of all its people.

2. South Africa of 2014:

The South Africa which came into being in 1994, has become stale, due to affirmative action, job-losses as a result of transformation, marginalisation of minorities, poor service delivery, poor management, incompetence, cadre deployment, nepotism, political appointments, lust for power, abuse of power, corruption, fraud, self-enrichment, cover-ups, incompetence, crime, farm murders, populism and ideological obsessiveness.

Every one in South Africa, apart from the ANC’s inner circle who has been advantaged by it, wants a country without these features. The result of this and other experiences, with which Afrikaners and other minorities face, is that a call is being made to stand together for a better dispensation – a dispensation which protects language and minority rights, maintains Christian values and guarantees freedom and justice.

In this manifesto the FF Plus explains its vision of how this has to be achieved, to broaden and deepen the democracy upon which this freedom is built.

3. Freedom with Justice:

Freedom can be described as the ability and right to make decisions and execute them.

As with the majority of South Africans, freedom is also central to the political thought of the FF Plus. While the FF Plus recognises the individual, a community and the state, and where applicable wants to protect it, there is a vacuum in South Africa with regards to the claim of freedom to communities.

4. What is the truth about South Africa?

The truth is that we have a very diverse country with different languages, cultures, religions and historical views. But also with realities that over 360 years we have grown accustomed to being economically intertwined and being dependent on each other. People believe that in this large country there is and has to be a place for everyone.

AFRICAN PEOPLE’S CONVENTION 2014 MANIFESTO

SECTION A

PREAMBLE to the APC 2014 Election Manifesto

A FUTURE for everyone, that is what we are about.  That is our promise to South Africans.

Our past has been premised on the exclusion of the majority – politically, economically and culturally.  Post-1994 has not only failed to effectively deal with these exclusions, but new forms of exclusions have emerged.  The poverty, inequalities and unemployment amongst the majority has persisted.  As it is, political democracy has been achieved but there has been no justice for the poor in a way that gives them a sense of shared hope and indeed a realistic chance at a bright future.

Our vision is of an egalitarian society – a society characterised by social solidarity and economic justice.  We want a society that is democratic in form, non-racial in character and socialistic in content. We believe that economic development is the central task of a people’s government;  i.e. growing the economy; creating employment, ending poverty and inequality.  Thus, as will be shown in the Manifesto our emphasis and focus is on how the lives of our people can be made better.  We correctly argue that the energy and creativity of the people led by a capable government can achieve the country’s economic and social goals.  Creating jobs, ending poverty and inequality is our single central focus!

The APC goes into these elections satisfied that it has given a full and positive account of itself for the last five years.  We believe that with increased electoral support, the APC will be able to serve our people better.  To us the primary responsibility of elected representatives is to address the people’s grievances.  We are certain that we have done enough to win the confidence of the people and present the APC as a viable, credible and progressive political force.

A FUTURE for everyone that is what we stand for.  We are looking forward to the elections with confidence and momentum.  APC will hold high the banner of revolution;  never to betray the Africanist cause or betray the historic mission set by the fighters for the cause of Africa. The APC is blazing a historic trail; it emerges as an independent and revolutionary African voice; totally committed to the welfare and well-being of the people.  We remain the humble servants of our people.

The road is tortuous, the future is bright.  A future for everyone.

Yours for a United and Socialist Africa.

ACA-Party  Manifesto  Preamble:
Our hope lies in God Almighty and we declare that the ACA – Party commits itself to install a God fearing leadership.
We submit to the authority of the Bible and our decisions will be based on the Bible principles. (1Sam 8:10–18) (Romans 13:1) (Proverbs 8:15) (Hebrews 10:24) (Matthew 22:21) (Matthew 28:19-20) (Luke 22:25-26) (Peter 2:13-14) (2 Chronicles 7:14)

a)The ACA-Party is coupled to all Southern African Nations and their languages who are in agreement with the ACA-Party and its aspirations.

b)The ACA-Party is in alliance with all Christian Churches and several cultural groups in Southern Africa.

c)The MAIN purpose, aspiration, approach and value system of the ACA-Party in a continuously changing climate is to make use of ALL the available options to obtain constitutional freedom and political self determination for all South Africans, with a contented, free and independent South African nation. The approach of the ACA-Party is dynamic, co-operative and integrated, with a value system based on high, ethical religious norms.

CHANGE FOR THE GOOD.

The world keeps on changing, which makes it necessary for us to change in order for us to survive in our environment. It’s not too late change our course. We can still make a huge, huge difference.
As South Africans many of us need to change – change for the Better and the Good. Repent, because if you are moving in the wrong direction, you urgently need to make a 180° u-turn. Yes, together we can work towards a better future. Let’s all take hands and stand together as South African Christians. We’ll only be able to build a positive and better future for ourselves and our children, provided we can unite and stand together. The only way we can progress will be when we measure our progress by the Word and Will of God.

OUR VALUES

We are determined to never compromise on the Christian, moral values of the ACA-Party. The ACA – Party believes that all the people in South Africa can live life to the fullest, without any poverty and crime and with a good health system for everyone. We envisage free schooling for our children up to Grade 12 or to the age of 18 years. The family is the cornerstone of the nation. The ACA – Party will install more support systems to assist any family in need. In order for us to build a nation we are proud of we need every father, mother and child to believe in the future.
Marriage is a sacrament instituted by God, as a covenant relationship between a Man and a Woman. We oppose the demands and rights of homosexual and lesbian groups to recognise homosexual “marriages” and adoption of children. Christ Jesus died on the cross for forgiveness for all of us.

God is there for everyone.

You have a choice to decide whether you are ready to reach out to Him. Are you ready? Elderly people are a nation’s treasure. The ACA-Party will commit to increasing the monthly welfare amount for elderly people without an income.

Economic Freedom Fighters Founding Manifesto
Posted on November 5, 2013 by admin — No Comments ?

ECONOMIC FREEDOM FIGHTERS FOUNDING MANIFESTO: RADICAL MOVEMENT TOWARDS ECONOMIC FREEDOM IN OUR LIFETIME:

Adopted by the Economic Freedom Fighters National Assembly on What is to be Done: 26 to 27 July 2013.

“Each generation must, out of relative obscurity, discover its mission, fulfil it, or betray it”- Frantz Fanon

PREAMBLE:

1. Our decision is to fight for the economic emancipation of the people of South Africa, Africa and the world. Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) locate the struggle for economic emancipation within the long resistance of South Africans to racist colonial and imperialist, political, economic, and social domination. This glorious resistance started with the Khoi and San people rising against colonial domination, marked by the arrival of settler colonists in 1652 in the Cape. This basically represents more than 350 years of Africans’ resistance against colonial and economic domination and exploitation.

2. The EFF recognises that, despite temporary victories in this or that battle, Africans were defeated, humiliated, and enslaved by colonial settlers, thereby symbolising colonial victory over the indigenous people of the South African territory. The EFF draws inspiration from the gallant fight those who came before us have mounted, generation after generation, against the superior firepower of the colonists. The EFF intend to elevate this resistance to a decisive victory to vindicate the justness of the cause of liberation wars and to pay tribute to all those who perished fighting for the liberation of the African people and all the oppressed people of our land.

3. Those who fought the gallant wars of resistance did so to resist forced dispossession of land, wealth, livestock and heritage, which they had cherished and inherited from their forebears. More than 350 years later, the war of resistance has not been won, and the battles that were fought almost represent nothing, because 20 years after the attainment of formal political freedom, the black people of South Africa still live in absolute mass poverty, are landless, their children have no productive future, they are mistreated and they are looked down upon in a sea of wealth.

4. While relatively developed, South Africa like many other colonies is still trapped in the colonial division of labour as supplier of primary commodities to the coloniser nations. This colonial feature cannot and will never be broken by continued economic dominance of private corporations, particularly in the natural and mineral resources sector. Multinational and private ownership of South Africa’s commanding heights of the economy should be discontinued in order to stimulate State-led and aided industrial development.

5. Our indignation at the continued economic domination of the people of South Africa and the extreme exploitation of the black working class explains where we come from, where we are, what our mission is, what our character is, and what is to be done to emancipate the black people of South Africa, the working class in particular, from economic bondage. The solutions we provide represent a coherent ideological tradition and draw inspiration from developments around the world on what has been done to advance the development and betterment of people’s lives in the aftermath of the defeat of colonialism and against imperialism.

6. South Africa is rooted in the alliance between British and Afrikaner capital. From its inception, capitalism in South Africa was underlined by racism, segregation, and sexism. It discriminated and oppressed the black majority. It discriminated and oppressed women. South African capitalism continues to be characterised by the extreme exploitation of the black working class. In short, the black majority, whatever their class location, are integrated into the mainstream of the economy in a subservient position relative to white people. While the legalistic forms of colonial-apartheid domination have been eroded 20 years ago, the economic system that marginalised, oppressed and exploited the black majority is still intact, with a few individuals benefiting, but only because they have been co-opted to portray a wrong picture that all is and will be well in our country.

7. The EFF note and appreciate the role played by generations of political freedom fighters who sacrificed their lives, were imprisoned, exiled, banished and separated from their families in pursuit of freedom. The reality, nonetheless, is that the political freedom attained symbolically in 1994 through inclusive elections have not translated into economic freedom, which must empower and assist the oppressed and exploited people of South Africa to be liberated from economic and social bondage. This feature of South Africa justifies our struggle for economic freedom and is also directed at the emancipation of the African continent.

IFP 2014 Manifesto South Africa

2014 ELECTION MANIFESTO
OF THE INKATHA FREEDOM PARTY
INTRODUCTION
The IFP believes that when you vote you shape and own your own future. We want to help you make that future the one you deserve. The IFP has spent long hours listening to you and analysing the problems you have raised. We have spent even longer looking for viable solutions and practical steps to put these solutions into action. This manifesto is proof of our commitment to you and our earnest desire to get South Africa working. It is also evidence of almost forty years’ experience in good governance. We know what works, and how to get things working. We value your opinion, your contribution as a donor and a volunteer, and your vote. South Africa’s Constitution gives us all the right to vote. But this right also comes with responsibilities and duties. It is our duty, come election time, to question the path and vision
the country is pursuing. It is also the time to reassess those who represent us.

It is our duty to ask ourselves three questions:
· Are our representatives capable of fulfilling their duties and their promises?
· Have they represented our interests with honesty and integrity?
· Have they responded to the issues that affect our families?

Today, many young South Africans believe that they will never be gainfully employed. The flowery struggle rhetoric and apparent gains of the past twenty years have not helped millions of South Africans put food on their tables. 1994 may have changed how we manage the affairs of our country; but for too many it has not changed how we live. Where once we struggled against Apartheid, now the vast majority of South Africans just seem to struggle. Frustration is rising, protests are flaring, street justice is burgeoning; and who is responding? What is the government doing? Does it even care?
These are questions we as South Africans should ask our representatives and ourselves as voters.
If the answers do not meet your expectations, and if politicians choose to placate you with vague promises, then it is your duty – it is your obligation as a citizen living in a democracy – to vote with your feet. It is time for South Africans to demand more of government. Let’s assess those in power and consider how we can make a change for our country, and ourselves. Your vote can change your future. I invite you to partner with the IFP, so that together we can heal our nation.
The Power is Yours!
PRINCE MANGOSUTHU BUTHELEZI MP
PRESIDENT OF THE IFP

DA 2014 Manifesto South Africa

Please click on the link DA_2014_Manifesto to open the full version of the DA 2014 Manifesto as pdf file.

LETTER FROM HELEN ZILLE
Dear Voter
We South Africans are at our best when we share a sense of national purpose. This election is taking place exactly 20 years after the democratic election that brought President Nelson Mandela to power. We all agree that South Africa is a better place than it was in 1994. Great progress was made in delivering services under President Mandela and President Mbeki’s governments. But since then, many South Africans have lost the sense of optimism that our first presidents gave us. What changed? After all, South Africa is still a great country, admired by many in the world. The ANC changed. Jacob Zuma’s ANC has forgotten the hope and promise of 1994. Today, the challenges facing South Africa are great. The number of South Africans without work continues to grow, and too many communities still live in fear of crime.
Most people feel powerless to fight the corruption of the leaders they once trusted to serve them.
But these problems can be overcome. Together we can change South Africa, and we can create jobs.
I would like to offer you an invitation: Vote for the DA in the 2014 election, and we can fix South Africa together. In a democracy your vote is your most powerful weapon. Jacob Zuma’s ANC is indifferent to the daily struggles of the millions of South Africans excluded from the economy. There are more unemployed South Africans today than
ever before. That is why the DA’s manifesto is about working together for jobs. The DA’s carefully tested and budgeted policies would grow the economy fast enough to create six million real, full-time jobs by 2024. Together we can build the South Africa we all hope to live in one day. Together we can ensure that every child receives a better education, that every deserving student is fully funded for tertiary education, that young people can get internships, work experience, and ultimately, that every adult has the opportunity to work. Together we can build a country that we can be proud of. In this election, you have an opportunity to shape our future for the better. Lend us your vote in 2014 – you will not
be disappointed. Vote for the DA.

Best wishes,
Helen Zille
