The survey which also asks respondents to suggest up to 12 new people who could help turn the nation around if elected to Parliament, is part of a campaign by the NNM to broaden the base of democracy by raising high-calibre. non-partisan candidates to stand in the House of Independents. which it has registered with the IEC for the May 8 general election.

Key court date on Thursday
Mkholiswa urged Cape Town believers, who wanted the political system to be changed, to come and give the NNM support at the Western Cape High Court next Thursday (March 7 2019) when it challenges the government to address a tension between the Constitution, which recognises the right for independents to stand for public office, and the Electoral Act, which only provides for political party candidates.

He said they wanted the court to address timelines for electoral change to ensure that independent candidates could stand for office by the 2024 elections.

He said they registered the House of Independents for this year’s elections with the IEC because they realised that no matter what the High Court rules on the proposed electoral reform. it would be too late to implement by May 8.

He urged believers to engage with its campaigns to keep up necessary pressure for change. The NNM’s vision was for the public to have the opportunity to choose parliamentary candidates who it believes would represent their will, and would be accountable to them and not to political parties. The public should also have the opportunity to elect the President of the country and cabinet ministers who were expertly qualified to carry out their respective portfolios, he said.

    Please add the name of Dr Convy Baloy of African Covenant (ACO) to the list?!

    • Have you done the survey? It gives you the opportunity to add names.

      • Andre, my take is, even before we consider participation in the survey as alluded to, Public Participation is of utmost importance. I therefore agree with you. But I must hasten to clarify that we are faced with a mammoth task as citizenry to put up a front of change of electoral system. No more should parties push names down our throat. Constituency-based Electoral System is the way to go. We must transition from “stomach politics” to “accountable politics.”

  2. A born again leader such as Magoeng Magoeng who has the interest of our nation and people at heart. Cyril Ramaphosa’s track record is questionable.

  3. We need an ousider non polititian,business savy intelligent and Spirit filled person to be the next leader.Someone thats not afraid to be unpopular,with a sold out servant heart.

    • Hi Leon Nell, thank you so much for that input. May we ask you to give us a name of the person or people that fit your description? The LORD Bless you indeed!!!

  4. The mammoth political hurdle here, even before we can think of taking any survey on prospective independent candidates, is overhaul of the electoral system. On this point I am in total agreement with NNM, and personally that is where I can throw my weight fully to ensure we realize a Constituency-based system. The number of political parties must be drastically reduced, we must transition from “stomach politics” to “accountable politics.”
