AIC says the electoral system must be changed

01 April 2014, 09:51
The African Independent Congress (AIC) formed in December 2005 is a pro-poor political movement in South Africa whose core values are grounded on human dignity, tolerance, respect and understanding. The AIC is different from other political parties formed post 1994.
The AIC was founded by the poorest of the poor people of Matatiele and there was not even one person who was a member of parliament or a councillor for that matter and not even one who was expelled from any political organisation for wrong doing. When we talk of organic purity, we talk about the AIC. The AIC has started a new struggle in South Africa post 1994 of claiming back the people's power from the lumpen-politicians and restore it to the rightful hands of the poor masses of this country. We want to overthrow the government of the leaders by the leaders for the leaders, and replace it by the government of the people by the people for the people. In this government, grass roots democracy shall be the order of the day, no decisions affecting the people shall be taken without proper involvement and meaningful consultation of all concerned.For the constitutional democracy to work better, the AIC believes that the electoral system in this country should be changed and the AIC proposes that there should be two rounds of elections within 21 days. The first round of election, the President of the country who must be above party politics shall be elected. All highly qualified people of high integrity, who are eligible to stand for the office, shall be allowed to stand.If the candidate who has won the race is from a political party, he/she must resign from his/her political party before he/she is sworn into the highest office in the land.
The second round of election shall elect public representatives from across the political spectrum in the country.
Once the public representatives are sworn in, the President will form his/her cabinet by appointing cabinet members from all political parties represented in parliament and this will be done on proportional basis. The AIC believes that this kind of an approach shall legitimize the multi-party system in our country, and further avoid the repeat of the eight days in September 2008 the removal of Thabo Mbeki.Further more, the country shall never again be faced with a scandal like  Inkandlagate, because the ministers so to speak will be representing the country across the board, unlike in the current rotten system where all cabinet ministers are from one political party (the ANC). If we want to save our beloved country from this rampant political rot we better act now, support the AIC in this struggle which is aimed saving our country for the future of our children. "We are the change that we seek, together we can start a new beginning for ourselves and for our children" Vote AIC on the 7th of May 2014. Mandla Galo AIC President.
