In its 4th year to lay the foundations for AL JAMA-AH South Africa’s new MUSLIM POLITICAL PARTY and to be a partner for South Africa’s three-Party State in 2030, Party Leader Ganief Hendricks has set what he believes are realistic targets for the 2014 triple elections (municipal, provincial and national). ” We can win 2 seats in the national parliament and one seat each in the 9 provinces, five seats each in the City of Cape Town, City of Durban and the City of Johannesburg/Pretoria and one seat each in the other Cities in the country.”
To put 30 public representatives in government Muslims must:
1. Register as voters
2. Vote on election day.
