Elections 2019: Hope for a better South Africa

South Africans make their choice between a record number of 48 political parties on the 2019 general election ballot

Published

on

It is said that more than 26 million South Africans out of an eligible voting population of almost 35 million registered to vote, voting stations countrywide have opened their doors and will remain open until 9pm as South Africans cast their vote for the sixth time since the end of apartheid.

It is important that South Africans consider the significance of exercising their right to choose a government.

After exercising that right it is important to take responsibility for the electoral outcomes, whatever they are, and ensure the elected parties and leaders honour their promises and do right by all South African citizens. It is important that leaders honour their manifestos. Abdication of democratic responsibility would be naive.
