FF Plus withdrawn court application against BLF

Reading Time: < 1 minute

The Freedom Front Plus (FF Plus) has withdrawn its application to have Black First Land First (BLF) banned as a political organisation.

The FF Plus and the BLF met in the Johannesburg High Court on Thursday over the BLF’s announcement that it is a blacks-only party.

The FF Plus wanted the Electoral Court to declare the BLF’s registration as a political party invalid.

BLF is accused of being against the Constitution and the Electoral Commission Act.

The Act stipulates that the IEC may not register a political party that excludes people on the basis of race, colour or ethnicity.
