Party abbreviation: IRC

In the 2019 elections, the party will contest in both the provincial and national polls.

The IRC will be seeking provincial legislature seats in the Eastern Cape, Gauteng, Limpopo, Mpumalanga, Northern Cape and the North West.

It was founded in 2008 and was registered as a political party in 2013.

Thinawanga Ernest Mammba is the party’s president.

The IRC participated in the 2014 general elections in a merger with AgangSA.

However, it contested the 2016 municipal polls on its own after Dr. Mamphela Ramphele’s party ran into financial difficulties.

The partnership secured Agang 0.28% of the votes, which translated to two seats in the National Assembly.

Party abbreviation: PAC

In the 2019 elections, the Pan Africanist Congress of Azania will be fighting for seats in the National Assembly and in all South Africa’s nine provincial legislatures.

The PAC has been contesting in the country’s elections since the dawn of democracy, securing only one seat in the National Assembly in 2014.

Mzwanele Nyontso is the leader of the party and is confident the PAC will do well in the upcoming polls.

He says he sold his house to run Atap’s election campaign.
