WELCOME TO THE MF
“ONE VISION, ONE FUTURE”
1. MF VISION
The Minority Front stands for meaningful co-operation.
We strongly believe that tolerance leads to peaceful co-existence. Our long-term vision is to ensure that a Ministry for Minorities and a Minority Commission are established, addressing the unique needs of minorities all over S.A.
2. MISSION STATEMENT
The Minority Front is a socio-political party with a purpose to participate within the true principles of democracy.
The Minority Front (MF) wants, not only to receive benefits from South Africa, but to work for them. Twenty years into democracy affirmative action should be scrapped, because sound economic and political justice is ensured through equal opportunities for all.
The MF believes that equality is the mother of justice and must be exercised unconditionally, irrespective of race, class, creed, age, gender and status.
Superficial use of pro-human rights I n the constitution must be avoided at all costs by leaders in our country, therefore we strongly reject the use of race tokenism to manipulate the economical, socio-cultural and political system.
3. THE MF LOGO
Our vibrant colours signify:
RED – Strength & Vitality
GREEN – Balance & Harmony
BLUE – Protection & Inspiration
TIGER – Mr A. Rajbansi was commonly known as the “Bengal Tiger”. He was a fighter to the end. Strong, tenacious with an acute long term vision for the MF.
Mrs S. Thakur-Rajbansi is a Tigress who will accomplish the MF objectives.
4. OBJECTIVES FOR THE NEXT 5 YEAR TERM
To ensure government establishes a:
- Ministry for Minorities
- Commission for Minorities
5. MINORITY FRONT PRINCIPALS
The protection of minorities and groups is always built on one principal: “the absence of discrimination and inequality”. We seek co-operation between races so that we can build a sense of lasting unity in diversity in South Africa.
6. EFFECTIVENESS OF MINORITIES
- Minority votes can hold the balance of power by having your own, true voice, in parliament.
- Minority rights are human rights that are internationally entrenched by various declarations and conventions, therefore minorities have nothing to fear. All they need to have is good, strong leadership.
7. RELEVANCE OF A MINORITY MOVEMENT TO THE NEW SOUTH AFRICA
We who have lived in the old S.A. and now in the new S.A. need to educate our children about history and revise our knowledge on minority groups along with that of the majority. This would certainly change attitudes and bring about social cohesion and nation-building.
8. WHY IS THE MF DISTINCT FROM OTHER PARTIES
- The MF skillfully negotiates for the people we serve, using quiet diplomacy
- The MF does not promote any group along ethnic or other lines, but if anyone is prejudiced or disadvantaged because he or she belongs to a particular group, it is the policy of the MF to oppose such unfair action.
9. WHY VOTE MF
- The MF in keeping with the legacy of our late leader, Mr A. Rajbansi (Bengal Tiger), will fearlessly, voice your concerns at all government levels making you the people, a powerful minority within the majority, capable of holding the balance of power.
- The power and effectiveness of minorities lies in their united vote which will strengthen our fight to bring about true justice and equality for all.
- People will only vote for a party capable of expressing their concerns.
- South Africans are looking to a “strong leader” compared to “democracy is always best”. Mr Rajbansi was one of S.A. most tenacious, resilient politicians known as a “Political survivor”, but the new leader, Mrs Shameen Thakur-Rajbansi is a “Tigress” in her own right.
- Minority movements are an international phenomenon and it is a known fact that the success of any democracy is dependent on the manner in which its minority communities are accommodated.
