Spoiled votes a wasted opportunity - ACDP

2014-04-14 20:05
Johannesburg - The call for voters to spoil their ballot papers would be a wasted opportunity, the African Christian Democratic Party (ACDP) said on Monday.

"Spoiled votes, although they express dissatisfaction, still keep the same party in place," ACDP chair Jo-Ann Downs said in a statement.

"Citizens must be proactive, and instead of only expressing their unhappiness, they should change the government... their vote is their only opportunity to do that."

Those who are unhappy with the ANC should not vote for them, she said.

Former intelligence minister Ronnie Kasrils and former deputy health minister Nozizwe Madlala-Routledge have asked South Africans to take a stand against fraud and corruption by spoiling their votes.

The two are garnering support for the "Sidikiwe Vukani! Vote No" campaign, due to be launched at Wits University on Tuesday.

The aim of the campaign was to get struggle activists and others not to vote for the ANC, or at least spoil their vote, on 7 May.
