The Core Values, which the United Democratic Movement will uphold and promote and upon which its fundamental policy positions are based, are as follow:
respect for life, dignity and human worth of every individual;
integrity in public- and private life;
the individual rights and freedoms enshrined in our Country’s Constitution;
tolerance and respect for the rights and freedoms of others;
solidarity in the common spiritual ownership of all that is good in our Country;
national self-discipline based on an acceptance that each right and freedom carries with it a corresponding and equal obligation and responsibility;
national moral regeneration towards a clear distinction between right and wrong, between what is acceptable conduct and what not, between good and evil;
economic policies based on moral values;
freedom of religion and worship.
I’m voting UDM coming the next elections… May God give you courage to carry out your good intentions for our Nation in the day of your power.
Hi, I think on the whole the UDM has my vote – i just want to know what this particular value means;
– national moral regeneration towards a clear distinction between right and wrong, between what is acceptable conduct and what not, between good and evil;
What is considered right and wrong in your point of view?
I admire your values and respect your parliamentary performance. I am a proudly white South African and live in Johannesburg. Your party has my families vote and many of my friends,both black and white. The party needs to lift its profile and target all disillusioned DA and ANC past supporters.
Thank you for the kind words – it energising!
Admittedly we struggle with boosting our profile; it is something that costs an absolute fortune and the UDM has to do the most with the little we have.
Thank you kindly for the support and faith!
I must say it is rather disappointing to note the party In respect so highly UDM is prepared to go into alliance with likes of Andile Lungisa and unstable Marlon Daniels just to get into power at all costs.This coalition is doomed from the start and it is not good for our people in NMB rather go for fresh elections.I do not care about DA but stability.for years ANC had an opportunity here but little was done for people to have faith leading this negotiations says a lot and surprised UDM is prepared to stoop so low.I know one vote you will not miss which is mine.i don’t want ANC here again through back door
Iam so propelled to join UDM but in my area it’s not visible the is no branch I live in Eastern Cape Bisho ward 45 Buffalo City Metro municipality I love your values
Dear Cinga, thanks for the compliments… I will chat with you via email if that’s all right, rather than exchanging information in public like this :-), Jana
