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.

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.
