Parliament has put new regulations in place making it extremely difficult for parties not yet represented in National/Provincial Parliament to participate in the 2024 Elections. This new law brings into question South Africans’ democratic right to vote, freely and fairly, for an officially registered political party of their choice.

As a result of the new law,  parties who wish to participate in the elections will have to provide the IEC with 7,200 public signatures to run on the Western Cape ballot and 13,800 for the National ballot.

Have your say.

    Do you believe Western Cape residents deserve the right to vote in a democratic referendum on Cape Independence?

    Fantastic! The IEC will ban parties from participating in the elections unless they receive 7200 signatures Provincially, and 13,800 Nationally. Please help enable the Cape Independence Party to participate in the 2024 elections by signing below. The Cape Independence Party represents the democratic right to vote for a referendum on Cape Independence.
    Note: Your signature of support does NOT bind you to vote for the Cape Independence Party. You are free to vote for whoever you want in the upcoming elections. Help protect the right for all parties to participate.

    Do you believe the Western Cape deserves the right to vote in a democratic referendum on Cape independence?

      1. If yes, you can help that goal become a reality in the 2024 National/Provincial Elections. If no, please share why you do not support the Western Cape’s right to vote in a democratic referendum on self-determination.
      2. Parliament has put in place new regulations making it extremely difficult for parties not yet represented in National/Provincial Parliament to simply be able to contest the 2024 Elections. This new law brings into question South Africans’ democratic right to vote, freely and fairly, for any officially registered political parties of their choice.
      3. As a result of the new law, parties will have to receive 7,200 signatures to contest on the Western Cape ballot and 13,800 to contest on the National ballot.
      4. The Cape Independence Party, which was registered with the IEC in 2008 and currently holds two seats in government, will be prevented from participating in the National/Provincial elections, and thereby would take away the free choice that voters have to democratically vote, ‘Yes’ or ‘No’, for a referendum on Cape independence.
      5. You could vote ‘No’ in a referendum, or you could vote ‘Yes’. And that is the purpose of elections, and the foundation of a democracy.
      6. If you support the right to be able to vote freely and fairly, for a party that will uphold the democratic choice to vote in a referendum on Cape independence, then you can help the Cape Independence Party meet the IEC’s new requirements and sign your support for this democratic right, here.
