“As a party we give assurance that in those 61 Municipalities, 358 wards and 8 provinces we are contesting, you will get better services.
As when other political parties were quite and willing to see you suffer longer due to non-service delivery, they are the party that stood up and was ready to stand for what they believed was right for the people on the ground.
“As you have seen from our victory against the IEC, Forum 4 Service Delivery is a party that lives by its pillars which are, non-violence, electoral reform and Grassroots Democracy.

Secondly, we’re challenging IEC to open voting for our South African who are either working, studying or visiting abroad,” it said.
Furthermore, forum saluted others around the country who have launched grassroots community- based movements.
“We ask the media not to refer to them as “small parties”. They are parties that give rights to all, and no one’s rights are small. The Freedom Charter said The people shall govern! How better than through a grassroots movement that respects the dignity of all?,” the forum concluded in their statement.
