AL JAMA-AH (abbreviated to ALJAMA) has submitted its election deposits and Party Lists to the I.E.C. to contest the 2009 April 22 provincial and national elections. Nine Party lists has been submitted for the regions listed below to contest the 200 seats in Parliament. A 10th party list has been submitted to contest the remaining 200 seats in the National Assembly. Two more party lists for the KZN and Western Cape Provincial legislatures bringing the total number of Party lists to 12 completes the first step to help build the first successful Political Party in the 400 year history of Muslims in South Africa – a historic moment to honour the political legacy left behind by Muslim political heroes in South Africa fighting for freedom and justice and respect for shariah rules since the 16th century.
As part of its seven year plan AL JAMA-AH is gearing up to also contest the 2011 Municipal elections and the 2014 provincial and national elections so that it can be a partner in the 3 – PARTY state that will run the country. This is an early invitation calling for candidates to contest all these elections.
While AL JAMA-AH has its eye on helping to govern in 2014 it is campaigning to cut its teeth in the 2009 elections and get six(6) seats in the National Assembly, Western Cape Provincial legislature and the KwaZulu Provincial legislature and one seat each in the other seven(7) provincial legislatures.
