The IFP National Executive Committee (NEC)
strongly condemns a newspaper report, published on Sunday, which
refers to the IFP as a "ballot bully" for allegedly being
implicated in pre-election intimidation.
The sensationalist headline, above the IFP
logo, claims that the IFP had been implicated in such
activities, but the article fails to mention one instance of
such alleged behaviour by the IFP.
We condemn such attempts to vilify the IFP.
The IFP NEC will contact the Community Agency
for Social Enquiry to request that their research into this
matter is made available, and if there were any instances of
misconduct on the part of any IFP members, we will take strong
The IFP is committed to free and fair
elections. We are a
party of peace, tolerance and respect.
