While 2014 was a bad year for the party, it has seen an upswing in support since 2016.

Singh says people of the Western Cape should care about the IFP since it has been taking up issues that affect them, issues such as the environment, medical cannabis to name a few.

We'll come as a breath of fresh air, not to be in government in the Western Cape, but to represent the interests in the Western Cape
