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
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.
