Election date announcement statement by Mr Bantu Holomisa, MP (UDM President) (10 February 2009)

We welcome the 22nd of April as an election date.

South Africans can now focus on evaluating the campaigns and policies of the various political parties and choose the party of their choice.

The law enforcement agencies must be alert to prevent any intimidation and acts of political intolerance.

It is now up to all of us to further nurture our democratic project.
