Voter Registration numbers up! Good news for the opposition


There is some good news on the horizon for the opposition politics in South Africa. If the IEC numbers are to be believed then some 500 000 new voters registered this weekend.  This gives us a far bigger base from which to draw support and many people who are registering are doing so as they start to understand, that in order to make a difference, you need to be a part of the solution.

I have checked my status (as well as my wife) via the IEC web site and am happy to report that  we are still registered. We will certainly to making our mark in the next elections and I would urge all responsible South Africans to do the same.

    It is very encouraging to note! Especially since there has been a renewed interest in prospective youth voters!
