The eight parties to the Multi-Party Charter invited a wide range of civil society organisations to get input as to what civil society expect from the Charter. This engagement was held on 28 November 2023 at the Birchwood Hotel in Boksburg.
The Inclusive Society Institute (ISI) attended the meeting in order to gain a deeper understanding as to the objectives and policy approaches of the Charter. It was noted that the individual parties would continue to campaign independently, and that the Charter was in effect a pre-election coalition agreement. The Charter does not have its own set of policies, but have agreed a set of principles around which a government programme should be designed.
The ISI will continue to monitor the developments within the Charter.
