- The Freedom Front Plus (FF+) party has just unveiled its manifesto in Pretoria
- FF+ leader says, “We cannot continue in South Africa as it is”
- The party have also made their position on gun laws in SA clear, calling for the rights of responsible gun owners to be respected
The Freedom Front Plus (FF+) has just shared its manifesto for 2019, making the party’s stance clear for the upcoming SA elections.
Known as the party that typically holds the interests of white Afrikaans voters at its core, it seems as though FF+ are attempting to diversify with their 2019 manifesto
“We are desperately in need of a new dispensation where diversity in SA is recognised as the true building blocks of true unity in diversity. A dispensation founded on mutual respect, without discrimination and racism,” the party claims.
In the presentation of the FF+’s manifesto, Groenewald urged voters to “be rational” when choosing where to take their vote, Briefly.co.za noted.
The FF+ leader also stated:
“We don’t make false promises. What we say, we will do. We cannot continue in South Africa as it is.”
According to EWN, the FF+ manifesto also took a strong position when it came to SA gun laws.
The FF+ is adamant that gun control in SA should not negatively affect the country’s responsible gun owners.
Although many are quick to disregard the FF+ as a small conservative party with little to no traction, last year, the Daily Maverick suggested that the FF+ may take a great portion of votes from the current pool of DA supporters.
