The FF Plus will be playing a key role in the 2014 general elections in Gauteng, Mr Jaco Mulder, MPL and FF Plus leader in Gauteng says.
According to the latest independent opinion polls of IPSOS, support for the FF Plus has grown by 22% in the province since 2009’s general elections.
Mulder, during a meeting in Centurion of the party’s Gauteng executive management and councillors, said that no other party could claim that it unashamedly fights for Afrikaans, minority rights, self-determination and against race-based affirmative action.
The FF Plus had during the past term distinguished itself in the province by running successful campaigns against the e-toll system, an investigation into the maladministration of Transnet’s pension funds, an attempt by the ANC and DA to discredit the Afrikaans community of Kleinfontein, maladministration in the DA-controlled Midvaal community, the right to mother-tongue education in schools and the continued pressure on the Gauteng government to force it to repair the dilapidated Bob van Reenen stadium in Krugersdorp.
“The FF Plus could, following the 2014 elections, hold the balance of power as a governing partner in a coalition government to unseat the ANC,” Mulder said. The FF Plus had in a similar manner in the past assisted, through a coalition with, amongst others, the DA, ACDP and Cope to unseat the ANC in Cape Town, George, Potchefstroom and Midvaal.
The FF Plus is the only party which gives a voice to Afrikaners and other minorities in both provincial legislatures as well as in the national assembly of Parliament.
