The Freedom Front Plus wants the Electoral Court to declare the Black First Land First’s registration as a political party invalid.

The FF Plus and BLF will meet in the Johannesburg High Court on Thursday morning over the BLF’s announcement that it is a black only party.

It says it is against the Constitution and the Electoral Commission Act that stipulates that the IEC may not register a political party that excludes people on the basis of race, colour or ethnicity.

In a statement, the BLF reiterates that it is a black only organisation.
