Ahead of the 8 May National Elections you would do well to acquaint yourself with the Political Parties registered on the National level for the elections.
Today we introduce you to: Alliance For Transformation For All
The ATA (Alliance For Transformation For All) was launched in 2018 by taxi associations to provide a voice for those in the taxi industry, but says it will also uphold the rights of small businesses in general. Given the extremely negative perceptions of the taxi industry nationally, it may struggle to win votes outside its industry – but the ATA says it aims to represent taxi associations, hawkers, churches and young people.
The newly formed political party Alliance for Transformation for All (ATA) made up of taxi associations across the country, has unveiled its leaders who will represent the party. Speaking in Langa, ATA’s deputy chairperson in the Western Cape Samuel Maneli says he hopes their members will represent their interests in Parliament should they get elected. He says the industry does not have support from the government and the political party
will be the voice of the industry. He also pleaded with the members to stop violence among themselves. Maneli says they will be contesting the general election at national and provincial level. “There is no way that we cannot succeed because we’ve got power. But the power that the taxi industry is going to use that power is for the industry’s good for the ordinary person in South Africa that power will be used.”
