Cape Town - The newly formed Land Party said on Wednesday that it was counting on the support of South Africans as it went into the national and provincial elections because of its track record in activism among the people.
"We are confident that people are going to show support to us because they have known our work that we have done for them without being in government," Western Cape premier candidate of the Land Party, Loyiso Nkohla, said.
Nkohla spoke to the African News Agency after casting his vote at Fisantekraal Primary School in Ward 105, where many voters came to vote for the parties of their choice.
He said the Land Party comprised mainly people from informal settlements, backyard dwellers and farm workers.
"The confidence that we express for our people, we have received lots of SMSs, social media messages, people expressing and showing their support and confidence to their Land Party, " he said, adding that there was nothing new to promise people other than continuing with the work that the party had been doing.
