BLF cues provincial structures to gear up for local government elections

Published on

The BLF has issued a call for its provincial structures to nominate and submit their lists of mayoral candidates to contest in the 2021 local government elections.

The Black First Land First Movement (BLF) published a statement on Thursday, 12 August 2021, regarding its local government elections (LGE) candidate list. The party is calling on its provincial structures to nominate and submit their lists of mayoral candidates, ward candidates and PR candidates by Friday, 20 August 2021, towards contesting for the 2021 LGE, further detailing all the relevant details to be adhered to.

The BLF stated that it is now offering excluded candidates for mayoral, ward and PR positions the opportunity to contest in the elections under its name. It has recognised that political parties generally impose their candidates on communities, with the intention of locking out other preferred candidates form the electoral process.

The BLF also asked that there be due adherence to its criteria for appointing mayoral candidates by the Central Committee, calling for prospects to be committed to the Black agenda, submit to the authority of BLF, and be a person of outstanding integrity. Candidates will be on a two-month probation period and are to ensure 100 percent establishment of the Regional Coordinating Committee and Sub Regional Coordinating Committee, 50 percent establishment of the Branch Coordinating Committee, and 30 percent establishment of branches.
