Co-operate to stop ANC: FF PlusComment on this story
Co-operation between different groups in South Africa is needed to stop the ANC, Freedom Front Plus leader Pieter Mulder said on Saturday.
“There is a place for everyone in this country. The FF Plus's re-worded mission does not want to motivate the Afrikaners alone, but also other minority groups,” Mulder said in a statement.
“Together, we have one goal and that is to defeat the ANC.”
Mulder criticised the ANC and said that there was currently a “tyranny of a majority” without a say for minorities in the country.
He said the FF Plus had “irrevocably committed” itself to co-operating with other communities.
“That is why it is essential that a new dispensation is brought about in which recognition is given to the diversity of the country and its people,” he said.
“We ask for a better dispensation for the Afrikaner, but will also fight for other minorities to obtain this.”
The party's membership of the Collective for Democracy illustrated this, he added.
The new Collective for Democracy consists of the African Christian Democratic Party, Congress of the People, the FF Plus, the Inkatha Freedom Party, and the United Christian Democratic Party.
Launched in December, the parties said they would work to advance democracy and contest the general election with a view to securing enough representation to form a new government.
Mulder launched the party's election manifesto on Saturday.
He said the FF Plus would be following a new direction to bring a new dispensation for South Africa which would be an advantage to everyone in the country.
Mulder said that the campaign for a solution for the oppression of Afrikaners and other minority groups in the country should be realistic, modern and fair for all. - Sapa
