I support Cape Independence, who should I vote for?

The 2024 elections are of critical importance to Cape Independence. Only one person has the power to call a referendum on Cape Independence and that is the Premier of the Western Cape. Once every five years we get to vote for or against that Premier and 2024 is our next (and possibly last) opportunity. 

Premier Alan Winde has refused to call a referendum on Cape Independence. This is despite his party promising that it would do so before the local government elections in 2021. If we want Cape Independence, then we absolutely have to vote against Premier Alan Winde. This means voting against the DA.

In 2024 there will be three separate ballots. These are:

  • Provincial Ballot (Electing the provincial government & premier)
  • Regional Ballot (Electing representatives from WC to serve in national parliament)
  • National Ballot (Electing the national government & president)

Three political parties have formally committed themselves to Cape Independence. Please vote for one of these three parties (click on each party to visit its website).

FAQs
Can I vote for the DA?

No. If you want Cape Independence to become a reality you must not vote for the DA in 2024. Despite previous promises, the DA have now made it explicitly clear that they will not call a referendum on Cape Independence (unless they are forced by voters to do so). Premier Alan Winde has said, if you want Cape Independence then you must vote for it.

Will this allow the ANC back into power in the Western Cape?

No, voting for any of these three parties will not allow the ANC back into power. None of them are willing to vote with the ANC to allow it to form a Western Cape Government. You are effectively voting to force a DA-led Western Cape Government to listen to you on Cape Independence.

I support Cape Independence but I want the DA to govern the Western Cape?

Then vote for the Referendum Party. It was created for people exactly like you. It has promised to vote with the DA to allow it to form a Western Cape Government, but to then force that government to call a referendum on Cape Independence.

I support Cape Independence and I don’t want the DA to govern the Western Cape?

Then vote for either the Freedom Front Plus or the Cape Independence Party who are offering themselves as alternatives to the DA, each with their own policy positions.

Why don’t you all just form one party?

This would have been ideal but in reality the millions of people who support Cape Independence have diverse political views. They agree that we need to be able to make decisions for ourselves, but they differ on what those decisions should be. As parties we will cooperate to deliver Cape Independence, but we each represent a different group of voters.
