ActionSA concluded a substantial public survey during the month of July which sought to engage the views of South Africans towards the multi-party National Convention taking place tomorrow and Thursday in Kempton Park.
The survey engaged 21 050 South Africans across all nine provinces and solicited their views on a wide variety of topics relating to the National Convention.
The survey found that:
What emerges from this exercise is that South Africans are positive about the multi-party Convention and see this exercise as an important step towards addressing the greatest challenges that confront them on a daily basis.
ActionSA has considered these outcomes which were deliberated upon by the Senate yesterday evening during which clear mandates were provided to ActionSA’s delegates attending the National Convention; ActionSA President, Herman Mashaba, ActionSA National Chairperson, Michael Beaumont, and ActionSA Eastern Cape Provincial Chairperson, Athol Trollip.
ActionSA wishes to assure South Africans that their voices have been heard in this survey and that these strong views about the National Convention find expression over the two days. We remain positive about the prospects for a successful agreement to be reached, especially in light of South Africans’ overwhelming views towards the need for this project to succeed.
