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.

It was established on 6 April 1959 in Soweto by ANC members who felt that the Freedom Charter was a betrayal of the Africanist ideology.

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.
