Multi-party Charter Presents Its Plan of Social Relief For Households Living in Poverty

Apr 22, 2024 | Press Releases

Joint Media Advisory by the DA, IFP, FF Plus, ActionSA, ACDP, ISANCO, UIM, SNP, UCDP, Ekhethu and UNP

With over 30 million South Africans trapped below the poverty line, and unemployment at 41%, the imperative of a social relief framework is indisputable. Government must put measures in place to protect the most vulnerable members of our society. Signatory parties to the Multi-Party Charter are united around an approach to ending poverty and hunger, blending short-term relief efforts with long-term strategies for socioeconomic development.

On Wednesday 24 April 2024, through a joint press conference, Party leaders in the Multi-Party Charter will present the Charter’s four agreed objectives towards building a social relief framework. The commitment of a Charter Government will be declared.

Symbolically, this press conference will be held outside a SASSA office, in solidarity with the millions of vulnerable South Africans who are subjected to a system mired in corruption and ineptitude.

Members of the media are invited to join us. Leaders will be available for interviews and photographs.
