PAC Joburg to target informal settlements

The election campaign of the Pan Africanist Congress of Azania's Johannesburg region would target voters living in informal settlements.

The election campaign of the Pan Africanist Congress of Azania's Johannesburg region would target voters living in informal settlements, regional chairman Nico Mmotong said on Sunday.

"This [election] campaign must be sustained as we target informal settlements," he said in a speech prepared for delivery at the party's second Johannesburg regional annual conference.

The party would conduct daily door-to-door campaigns as its 2014 election manifesto was ready to be distributed to party structures.

"As an Africanist socialist democratic organisation, we currently work towards our long-term aim of establishing a classless society," Mmotong said.

To achieve this, members needed to develop a common vision and purpose, with maximum discipline and high morale.

This was after the region had experienced some problems of ill discipline last year, which meant it had failed to organise activities to commemorate events such as Youth Day on June 16, the anniversary of the PAC, and Workers Day on May 1.

"Despite the above described situation, the regional executive committee and [the] majority of... cadres continued to hold the fort by working hard and this resulted in us succeeding in organising and embarking on some activities."
