UNITED DEMOCRATIC MOVEMENT

MEDIA RELEASE

UDM APPOINTMENTS

RELEASE ISSUED BY  ANNELIZÉ VAN WYK as UDM ACTING NATIONAL SECRETARY

The transformation of the UDM from a political party outside of parliament to one represented in parliament and the legislatures required certain changes in the structures of the UDM.

On the one hand, the UDM will focus on fulfilling its role as a Parliamentary Party and further the agenda of the UDM as spelled out in its Election Manifesto.  On the other hand the UDM must build the party organisation and prepare for the 2000 Local Government elections and the 2004 General Elections.

Apart from taking up her parliamentary duties, the Acting Secretary General is tasked with the duty of building the organisation, developing the structures and preparing it for the 2000 and 2004 elections.

As national media spokesperson, Malizole Diko was appointed.  In future all media enquiries should be directed to him.

Johan Steenkamp was appointed as parliamentary liaison officer and will be tasked with publicising the parliamentary activities of the UDM.
