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: People’s Revolutionary Movement – PRM
Launched in 2016 in KwaZulu-Natal, the PRM is led by president Nhlanhla Buthelezi – who has previously used his Twitter account to describe the EFF’s Julius Malema as “a whites’ surrogate” and the EFF as a “white-formed party”. The PRM has received most of its media attention thus far as a result of its vocal homophobia: It has denounced “those who promote Sodom and Gomorrah in the land of our kings and queens”. It is also against abortion, prostitution, and foreign nationals. When it comes to the latter group its policies are quite detailed, including penalising landlords who let premises to foreign nationals over South Africans. It wants poor South Africans charged a maximum of R100 a month for electricity and water, and rich South Africans taxed more punitively.
The People’s Revolutionary Movement (PRM) is a South African political party founded in November 2016 by former African National Congress councillor Nhlanhla Buthelezi in the KwaZulu-Natal province . Known for its socially conservative views (particularly on LGBT rights), the party is contesting the 2019 national and provincial elections.
People’s Revolutionary Movement (PRM) is a product of demands by the poor and helpless people of South Africa. The South African society and voters have lost hope in party electoral system and being exposed to the abuse of political power, manipulation, corruption and looting of state resources. Abuse of majority and democracy by the ruling party and opposition parties left people with no option but to seek for a unique and different political party which will humble itself and return power to the people through constitutional reforms.
By 2019 and beyond PRM shall represent the working people and the poor in parliaments and governments. We shall together with the church (Religious Leaders), Kings and Queens work to bring about economic ownership and equity to all South Africans irrespective of gender, color and creed. We shall all work towards the country’s prosperity and better life for all.
Revolution From Below! UMntu eMntwini! Motho Mothong! Common Touch! Move!
