Response to the so-called civil society organisations on the Electoral Amendment Bill
20 October 2022
This letter serves as a response to a letter you wrote to individual Members of Parliament requesting them to vote against the Electoral Amendment Bill, which will be tabled and approved by the National Assembly on the 20th of October 2022. After presenting a lot of incoherent and totally subjective views against the Bill, the letter you have sent to Members of Parliament says that if we democratically and legitimately reject your opinion, you, as "civil society", "will also inform South Africans to take note of those political parties who vote in favour of this Bill so that in the 2024 elections they can isolate such actors because they pose a direct threat to the strength of our cherished democracy".
Please be informed that the Economic Freedom Fighters and all its Members of Parliament are going to emphatically and decisively vote for the Electoral Amendment Bill that will be tabled in the National Assembly on the 20th of October 2022. We will also support that the Bill be passed by the National Council of Provinces before it is signed into law by the President. What this means is that we reject your request that we must vote against the bill with contempt.
As part of this rejection, we request that each and everyone of the so called Civil Society Organisations that signed the letter disclose as to who exactly are they representing and who are the funders of their activities. We have it on good and conclusive authority that organizations such as Right To Know, Open Secrets, Rivonia Circle, My Vote Count and Defend our Democracy are funded by the Open Society Foundation which belongs to an American Neo-Colonialist called George Soros.
George Soros is a departing 92-year old Neo-Colonialist who feels entitled to impose his worldview and subjective interests in different parts of the world. George Soros is an anti-black racist who goes around dictating what should happen to countries as if there are no people who can determine their own future. In South Africa, all right-wing organisations, so called civil society formations, and so-called publications such as the Daily Maverick, are funded by George Soros' Open Society Foundations.
