African Christian Democratic Party (ACDP) Western Cape leader, Ferlon Christians, says the party does not discriminate against anyone but is based on a strong biblical foundation.

He says it is important to note that they are not a church nor a religious organisation but a political party that wants to bring change in South Africa.

According to Christians, the party has been in existence for 25 years.

If he is elected premier he will ensure that the rate of crime in the Western Cape is reduced drastically.

If I'm elected premier, I would look at strengthening the relation with police and also resource our neighbourhood watches as well as community policing forum.

Ferlon Christians, Western Cape leader - ACDP

We would also work with communities to eradicate crime because crime is a major factor and we believe with the powers we have in our constitution we can reduce crime.
