The party recently came under fire after one of their political campaign ads depicted the burning of the South African flag. Cuthbert said the party is part of the Multi-Party Charter because it believes rescuing South Africa requires a collaborative effort. He also said that the party's manifesto highlights how it will work with civil society and businesses to put the country on the right track.
