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: National Peoples Ambassadors
The (National Peoples Ambassadors) NPA – not to be confused with the National Prosecuting Authority – calls itself a “radical, left, anti-capitalist and anti-imperialist movement with an internationalist outlook”, formed in 2015. Its principles are EFF-lite: Like the Fighters, it wants nationalisation of banks and mines, but its rhetoric is more embracing, including the dictum that “the land belongs to everyone who lives in it”. The party would probably be unimpressed with the EFF comparison – in 2016 its general secretary Andile Hlatshwayo lay charges of high treason against Julius Malema, on the grounds that Malema’s parliamentary behaviour was in conflict with the spirit of Ubuntu.
“The NPA came to exist & face reality of all opposition parties in the struggle to Defeat the Elite Government of the day the ANC in order to make this country a better place for all.
“We are officially Registered with the IEC to contest the 2016 Local Elections and we regard this as the year of revolution for the NPA
“As a new movement in the political batle ground the NPA comes with a different genre of approach with a mind of a Powerful Political Entrepreneur Mandate as empowered by the People of South Africa especially the Youth as majority that holds authority enough to recall the ANC Government to Order!!!
“The NPA understand that as the organisation of a social revolution party we must introduce a turnaround reformation strategy that will engage the population to always excesize their voting power and never be intimidated by an individual or elite group that does not give a damn about them as citizens of South Africa with the Authority vested in them by the national bill of the Constitution and the Freedom Charter.”
The NPA made headlines in 2016 when their Secretary General Andile Hlatshwayo lay charges of treason against EFF leader Julius Malema, charging that his conduct in parliament was both unbecoming and in conflict with the spirit of Ubuntu.
Also in 2016, the party attempted to organise a strike in the Alfred Duma Local Municipality, aiming to shut all 36 wards in the municipality. The strike was called off after the NPA failed to meet the legal requirements.
This information is gathered from the IEC and the above party website or publicly available documents.
