DA launched petition to prevent BLF from taking part in 2019 elections

The Democratic Alliance is calling for support in signing their petition that will prevent the Black First Land First party from participating in the 2019 national elections.

The party launched its petition on Sunday, 3 February and cites the BLF's racism as their reason for wanting them to not be part of the elections.

The BLF has shown itself to be a cabal of unrepentant racists whose mission is to divide South Africans along racial lines and to undermine the constitutional value which states that “South Africa belongs to all who live in it.”

Briefly.co.za gathered that the DA needs 50 000 signatures, and at this point, they have just over 6 000.

Part of the petition reads:

We call on the IEC to bar BLF from contesting the 2019 national and provincial elections, following their consistent, vile, and racist attacks on white South Africans.
The IEC cannot in good conscience accept that a party, which marvels at the death of three young learners at Hoërskool Driehoek, is placed on the ballot paper and given the opportunity to contest. All they will do is peddle hate along racial lines in parliament or in the country’s nine provincial legislatures.
Their racial hatred has gone unchecked for far too long!
