JOHANNESBURG, South Africa – The MK Party has moved to dispel any misconceptions regarding its position on attending Parliament, firmly reiterating its decision not to participate in parliamentary proceedings until the conclusion of court proceedings related to alleged election rigging by the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC).

In response to what it termed as “mischievous media reports,” the MK Party clarified that its stance remains unchanged, grounded in the belief that attending Parliament prior to the resolution of electoral disputes would compromise the integrity of the democratic process.

At the heart of the matter lies the party’s assertion that the recent elections were marred by widespread irregularities, resulting in what it describes as the “massive theft” of MK party votes. Citing a commitment to political integrity and expediency, the party has steadfastly refused to engage in parliamentary activities until all votes are counted and voices heard.

Central to the MK Party’s electoral platform is the agenda to effect significant constitutional reforms, including the overhaul of what it terms as the “neo-liberal constitution” and the implementation of land expropriation without compensation. However, the party contends that any participation in parliamentary proceedings prior to the resolution of electoral disputes would undermine its commitment to democratic principles.

The MK Party’s decision underscores its unwavering dedication to ensuring fair and transparent electoral processes, even at the expense of immediate parliamentary engagement. With pending court applications aimed at challenging the legitimacy of the election results, the party remains resolute in its pursuit of justice and genuine representation for its constituents.

In reaffirming its position, the MK Party emphasizes its unwavering commitment to upholding the voices and wishes of its supporters, vowing to continue the fight for true representation in Parliament. As the legal battle unfolds, the party remains steadfast in its resolve to uphold democratic values and hold electoral institutions accountable for any perceived malpractice.
