Christmas message to all of South Africa statement by the UDM President (24 December 2008)

The UDM would like to wish all South Africans a Merry Christmas and a Prosperous New Year. This as South Africa looks forward to the year 2009 with much anticipation with regards to the upcoming general elections.

The year 2008 saw many changes in relation to politics, the economic situation as well as loss of possessions for many people in the country.

The political front changes witnessed from the ruling party in Polokwane have since led to the emergence of a new political party, whether that would lead to a change in the political landscape needed in SA, will be determined by the forthcoming elections in 2009.

The UDM would like to remind South Africans to register to vote and to be responsible in defending the gains of democracy.
