This will hopefully create a much needed opportunity to give back power to people in specific areas and communities to vote for those in their area that understand their own needs.
Those that really care about communities will then stand a chance to really make an positive impact. They will have to impress the community not some political party that make decisions based on a political party's agenda and not on the community actual needs.

I'm grateful that we the people and the public are being consulted on this matter. I absolutely support this because we need truly empowered independent leaders to disrupt the status quo where individuals take up positions for self-serving reasons to advance their political ambitions and bask in positional power for the minimal time as a stepping stone to even more positional power which they abuse mostly. I'm all for independent leaders of integrity who don't play the party politics games we've seen, mavericks who are brutally honest and lead with raw and wildcard transparency. Vote for the women, vote for the man is my view. I want to see sovereign leaders who stand in their power and inspire other rising leaders and individuals to lead with absolute honesty. The South African people have had enough and are wise to all the ways in which their trust has been betrayed. I'll be voting for the man or the woman, never again for a party. The passing of this bill will be a great thing for our country in my opinion. Time to evolve. The old game is totally over. Thank you.

The new proposed electoral law will provide an opportunity where individuals will be able to be kept responsible for their actions.

It seems important to give effect to the section of the Constiution which gives every SA citizen the right to stand for office without having to do this via a political party. A possiblity to enhance democracy.

It is time that we allow independent candidates as the ANC seems incapable of producing descent leadership.

It is time that those who willing to serve the community on a non-political basis be allowed to do so. These Independents can then be held accountable for their actions and if they fail to produce the goods they must be forced to stand down. Independent's can be elected to serve the community and must be held accountable to the community and no political party. We have seen what has happened over the last 20 years or so. Service delivery to the community, those that pay the wages & all the perks of the politicians, is virtually non-existent. To be aligned with a political party means that you can hide from those that politicians are supposed to serve. It certainly will go a long way to reducing the graft & corruption that is a pandemic in South Africa.
