Mashaba's party has shown that it has met the IEC's criteria's to run in the elections.
Speaking to Bongani Bingwa, Mashaba says his entry in the political arena will make a huge difference.
Our country is on fire and we are just shot of being declared a failed state and an intervention is critical and urgent for the country. I believe Action SA is going to be the party that is going to make that difference.Herman Mashaba, Leader - Action SA
He says 18.5 million South Africans didn't vote in the last elections and ever since the launch of the People's Dialogue as a platform to engage citizens, 2.4 million South Africans gave his party the mandate to run for the elections.
It is important to unseat the African National Congress and bring a government that will serve citizens and and not serve its political needs. We were given a mandate by 2.4 million South Africans to contest in the upcoming elections.Herman Mashaba, Leader - Action SA
