UNITED DEMOCRATIC MOVEMENT
BRING DOWN THE FUEL PRICE
STATEMENT ISSUED BY ROELF MEYER as UDM DEPUTY PRESIDENT
UDM challenges government to cut the fuel price by 30 cents a litre by abolishing
the tax on fuel. Tomorrow’s rise
of the fuel price is a clear indication of how out of touch the ANC government
is with the desperate circumstances of its people.
The increased fuel price will most affect those who can afford it the
least. In our election manifesto,
we clearly state that when the UDM becomes government, we will abolish the tax
on fuel immediately. Commuters, who
have to travel long distances to and from their workplace because of Apartheid
zoning regulations, will benefit most from such an action. It will put R4 billion back into the pockets of the commuters
and improve their immediate circumstances.
