This is after an complaint by the Freedom Front Plus that the BLF excluded membership on the basis of race.
According to the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) statement: “Admissions by the BLF in its response to the appeal had served to clarify the position of the party, namely to exclude white people from membership.”
The FF Plus has welcomed the decision by the IEC, describing it as a victory.
“The fact that the appeal was granted means that justice prevailed. The FF Plus has been fighting for law and order in this case since January.
“It is unacceptable that the IEC violated the act by registering the BLF in the first place. Legislation may not be seen as mere guidelines, it must be complied with. No one is above the law,” says the party’s leader Pieter Groenewald.
