Ahead of the 8 May National Elections you would do well to acquaint yourself with the Political Parties registered on the National level for the elections.
Today we introduce you to: Minority Front – MF
Minority Front founder Amichand Rajbansi was a larger-than-life figure on the South African political scene, known as the “Bengal Tiger”. Rajbansi is sadly no more, but his shadow hangs heavily over the MF, which has lobbied to change the name of all manner of infrastructure around Durban to honour him. In 2014 the party won just over 22,000 votes, too few for a single MP, but in 2019 aims to restore the “Indian voice” to the seat of legislative power. It wants affirmative action to change to benefit minority racial groups and is opposed to land expropriation without compensation.
The Minority Front is a socio-political party with a purpose to participate within the true principles of democracy. The Minority Front (MF) wants, not only to receive benefits from South Africa, but to work for them. Therefore, we insist that affirmative action policies include the disadvantaged minorities, because sound economic and political justice is ensured through honesty, responsibility and respect for the rule of law.
The MF believes that equality is the mother of justice and must be exercised unconditionally, irrespective of race, class, creed, age, gender and status.Superficial use of pro-human rights in the constitution must be avoided at all costs by leaders in our country, therefore we strongly reject the use of race tokenism to manipulate the economical, socio-cultural and political system.The MF stands for meaningful co-operation. We strongly believe that tolerance leads to peaceful co-existence. Our long-term vision is to evolve into an umbrella body, addressing the unique needs of minorities all over S.A.
Why is The MF Distinct From Other Parties?
- The MF skillfully negotiates using quiet diplomacy for the people we serve.
- The MF does not promote any group along ethnic or other lines, but if anyone is prejudiced or disadvantaged because he or she belongs to a particular group, it is the policy of the MF to oppose such unfair action.
- We believe, demographic factors must be considered, because national majorities become minorities in a defined demographic area and vice versa.
