ActionSA president Herman Mashaba is proud to announce the registration of the political party at the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) today. The party underwent registration immediately after its launch in August, which included obtaining signatures of 500 registered voters who support the new party.
Mashaba was pleased to announce the party’s team obtained signatures of well over 1000 registered voters within a matter of hours. “Our teams reported that they were inundated by the number of people who want to sign this important deed of foundation,” Mashaba explained in a statement.
“We have registered as a political party at a national level, across all nine provinces, because our ultimate goal – irrespective of whether we contest next year’s local government elections – will be to challenge for national power in the 2024 General Elections.”
Herman said that the registration is yet another milestone for the party to deliver an alternative to South Africans, who have been failed by their political system.
“I believe it is highly appropriate that we register this party the day after President Ramaphosa announced the move to level 1 lockdown regulations, because we will dedicate ActionSA to being the party of economic solutions that will create jobs and prosperity for all South Africans.”
This achievement is a proud moment for ActionSA and the South Africans who have participated in the dialogue that laid the foundation for the new party.
