Campaigns becomes more interesting prior to the elections

14 January 2014, 14:03

Electioneering becomes more interesting prior to the general elections 2014

Enough !!!!!!!!!!!With this cheap politics before the elections. I think that before the elections come we will be deaf as a result of this many loud voices of politicians who are always lying to us as a nation .We have in the past few days seen an increase as far as electioneering is concerned. The DA’s Mmusi Maimane has been blasted in the media this morning by a certain political analyst on talk radio 702 and 567 cape talk when he said that he thinks that the DA will make sure that ANC gets below 50% of the votes. South Africa has witnessed also a several statements by the Jacob Zuma when he said that ANC will rule forever and also that he will change the Constitution. We have also seen the EFF’s Julius Malema claim that event though it seems hard they will win the elections and e also went to as far as talking to the IEC about elections policy.

 I for one voice m opinion and think that all these politicians are lying to us. for most of the promises is what they should start doing, and this clientelism thing which states that you vote we provide is not fair, I actually think that they should do some of the things for e.g. the 6 million jobs that Zuma promises, he must provide them before we vote so that more will vote for him and the job creation as Maimane has also promised in the DA must start so that we will vote for him, the EFF’s promises about Land Reform must come into place.

My message has always been more about the fact that the ruling party always criticizes the opposition parties, especially the main opposition DA.

All these political parties are not perfect, below are some of the faults involved within every political party.

1.     ANC- One of their current problem is that Jacob Zuma is the president of the party and th face of the Elections campaigns. The problem with this party is that it has always used the names of former presidents and the apartheid as a tool to win elections and their campaigning message is one of the old same kind of stories that they promise, that together we can do more but they are at a later stage always in every after election become silent and you would even forget that there were talks about promises in terms of service delivery. The ANC is not perfect and they have many wrongs. They never practice their promises.

2.     DA-It is a political party that practices its elections based on the ANC and its messages for the elections are based on the faults of the ruling party and that is the current language used by the DA candidate for premier in Gauteng Mmusi Maimane. The most important party for the future of this economy, always criticizing the executive but brigs no solutions to the problems.

3.     EFF- The problem with this party is that they are uncontrollably disrespectful. their campaigns are full of insult and they also go around claiming economic liberation in the name of insulting the ruling party. This party is one of the most self-proclaimed revolutionary part which promises one amongst many things the controversial and most important issue of land reform. It looks promising to win elections but it doesn’t have a backbone, firstly they lack finance, secondly they are a political party which lacks information and experience in terms of political competition. Yes they are an influential party but who knows if what they are promising is what they deliver since their so –called their commander in chief was expelled from the ANC and faces corruption charges by SARS.

I have a question to all the people interested in political affairs of this country as these days everyone seems interested like never before in politics.

Is there ever a time when we will r see a political campaign for elections in this country that is not about any faults of an opposite political party.

What shall happen to counteract around this problem of a blame game in politics?

Which party will win the elections?

Do you think all the elections will be fair and will the IEC be impartial and unbiased?
