#OutForElections - political parties have their say prior to municipal elections

In the build up to the 2016 local government elections, CapeTalk is broadcasting from Athlone's Dulcie September Civic Centre.

Political parties came out in numbers to be part of this broadcast and to have an opportunity to persuade voters to vote for their parties.

The first hour gave smaller parties a chance for the to have their say. The big parties were invited to present their views in the second hour.

The first party to take the floor, was the Democratic Independent Party, represented by Councillor Anwar Adams.

We are not just a small party, we are a party to be reckoned with and we are here to lead everyone else

Anwar Adams, DIP

Cape Town cannot claim to be the best city in the world while people are going hungry, jobless and living in the dire situations that they do

John Maytham also spoke to a candidate of the Inkatha Freedon party (IFP), Kenny Blorie.

ANC and DA are failing the people of Cape Town... definitely the IFP is coming and our primary focus is 2019.

Kenny Blorie, IFP

The African Christian Democratic Party (ACDP) Western Cape Leader, Ferlon Christians also joined in to have his say and what the party can offer the people of Cape Town.

This time around i believe we are stronger than before, we are better prepared and we have people form other political parties with experience who came to join us. We are very excited for Wednesday coming and we think the results will be very different from 2011.

Ferlon Christians, ACDP

Nationalist Coloured Party calls themselves the only political party for the true liberation of the coloured people. Spokesperson Desmond van Niekerk says before 1994 elections all coloured people thought they were black only to discover that they are still labeled as coloured in government forms.

We are claiming an identity which was given to us .... we have been extremely marginalised to a place where we have no say.

Desmond van Niekerk, NCP
