African Christian Democratic Party (ACDP) Western Cape leader, Ferlon Christians, says the party does not discriminate against anyone but is based on a strong biblical foundation.

He says it is important to note that they are not a church nor a religious organisation but a political party that wants to bring change in South Africa.
