SA Political Parties pledge to act ethically at Signing Ceremony on The Charter of Election Ethics

Posted: 13 April 2016

SALGA and the Moral Regeneration Movement brought together South Africa’s political parties contesting for the 2016 Local Government Elections to formally commit and pledge themselves in adhering to good values and ethics to ensure responsible and ethical political leadership as the country moves closer towards elections.

The signing of the Charter of Elections Ethics took place at the Constitution Hill, Women’s Gaol, in Johannesburg on Wednesday, 13 April. Among the political parties that attended the signing ceremony were the ANC, DA, EFF, COPE, ACDP, APC, AGANG, PAC, NFP, UDM, AIC and the IFP.

According to SALGA and the Moral Regeneration Movement, the Charter will promote social cohesion and nation building, raise awareness around the importance of voting. Most importantly, promote free and fair elections based on tolerance and an outcome of acceptable results.

Welcoming party delegates and guests at the ceremony, SALGA Deputy Chairperson Councillor Mpho Nawa said SALGA is happy to partner with the MRM in implementing ‘The Charter of Elections Ethics’ and called on all the political parties to work together to build a country that we can all be proud of.”

The Charter outlines a number of values and ethics that political parties need to promote, support and adhere to during the elections. It requires them to strive to elect candidates who are ethical, principled and competent. Most importantly, political candidates should always aim to serve their communities and the country before their party or themselves. It is part of a long term project to build and instil good values in society.

Guest Speaker Professor P Zulu of the University of KwaZulu Natal said it was former President Nelson Mandela who saw that the country was in need of the RDP of the soul therefore the MRM was for that purpose.

"Public representatives are entrusted with the allocation and distribution of public resources. It is a delegated responsibility. Delegates must not be bigger and better than those who delegated them. Taking resources where they are not meant for is wrong and immorally”, he said.

Professor Paulus Zulu said that South Africa has always been a place of mansions and shacks. “The continued disparities and gross inequalities between the poor and the rich calls for introspection.”

Parties were given two minutes to reply and respond to the pledge they had signed.
