Divided Party (DiP)
Registration of DiP
A certificate of incorporation was issued on 9 January 2019 by the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) in South Africa. Work is ongoing to contest the 2019 general elections.
Reasons to vote for DiP
Diverse cultures being united is an idealist fallacy, South Africans have been indoctrinated with since after the Anglo-Boer War. The reality is, in most places, governance is divided into language groups. A modern phenomenon, for example, in the European Union, is, citizens can own property any where and live there, if they want to.
DiP promotes self-determination.
DiP can draw votes for the idea self-determination from all groups of South-Africa because of a unique constitution, which supports all groups, with different policies, convictions and beliefs. It is not necessary for a leader of DiP to toe the line of others.
The purpose to divide, for self-determination of all groups, is simple and will depend on negotiations in the future.
Each group will determine their own economic, legal, education and other policies, therefore the decision to vote for DiP, during 2019, does not depend on those things. A vote is simply for the idea, which will make more detail possible in the future.
Voting for DiP, means voting for the manifestation of a new political idea, self-determination in one party, for all South Africans.
To support DiP, the first priority is to donate or buy an investment via Africahead Ipparts (AFA). Africahead pays commission, within the law, of 20/120 for selling AFA. The first 1'000'000 ZAR raised with AFA, will go to DiP. Other organisations must also fund DiP and establish their own Houses in DiP. Without funding from outside, DiP cannot take part in the 2019 elections.
Policy of DiP
The ideas of the party motivate selfdetermination. Selfdetermination is an internationally accepted right people have. The attainment of the right in a peaceful way will be more likely if different groups work together in one party to attain the goal. Acceptable dividing criteria exist, and if the criteria are respected, people from different backgrounds can divide themselves in a peaceful united way and attain selfdetermination. Previously divisions and consequential selfdetermination came into being via wars, which are unacceptable.
Different groups will be represented by DiP, each with their own policies. Land policy, because it is the most topical, can be used to explain the policy. The policy of DiP implies, South Africa must first divide into regions with self determination before any Expropriation Without Compensation (EWC) happens. The only shared policy, among the leaders to be, of DiP, is, governance of land must be divided. How the division will take place, and where borders will be, are matters for negotiations. The division of land does not mean people will have to move, if they do not want to. In Europe, for example, people can live anywhere.
A proposal in DiP, is to attach, language and belief preferences, to land. An area could have only one first language and English as second language, whilst the laws of the area mirror the beliefs/convictions of the group, governing the region.
Governance will become more decentralized. Culture and philosophy/religion have an important influence on the law and education, therefore each area will have an own legal and education system. A big difference exists among different groups, when, for example, "the individual" are considered or not. All cultures do not respect the two primary ideas of Intequinism, Truth and Love, the same way. One House of DiP has Intequinism as its foundation.
Other Houses will form in DiP. Many "religious" people have conviction, that, only "God is honest", causing deceit towards others. It is accepted in DiP, but with the caveat, division is necessary into different Houses. Probably, each House will represent a region, but how the Houses will develop, is not predetermined. These cultural differences have a major impact on creativity, development methodology and sustainability. Different beliefs/convictions on the same piece of land cause friction, because belief/conviction determine the law, which should keep the peace. How money forms, is influenced by belief/conviction. With modern technology, different areas can align their money generating policy to their belief/conviction, if they want to.
A leader of DiP may promote any policy, but the policy must align with the constitution of DiP, to divide peacefully. Therefore, different Houses will form in DiP, something the constitution makes provision for.
The following proposed steps to determine division can be discussed.
1) Different groups, which are interested to determine their futures self are identified.
2) A referendum divides the population.
3) Negotiations take place.
4) Borders for decentralized governance are drawn. Language areas already exist in South Africa. The following language map of South Africa, produced by Stats SA from 2011 census data, was sourced from Wikipedia.
Moving is not a prerequisite for dividing a country. Division can happen only with regard to governance, without requiring movement. If people want to move, it can happen as time goes on, after establishing different governance regions. Changes in the short term, in most areas, will probably not be much. In the long term, adjustments in line with reality, will happen gradually. DiP therefore promotes constant gradual changes, and rejects revolutionary change, DiP's policy implies.
Constitution of DiP
The constitution of DiP explains its primary purpose.
Funding of DiP
DiP is not a rich party. Raising capital is important, to pay deposits for candidates of the 2019 elections. Around R 700'000 (ZAR) is required for a candidate on the national ballot paper and a candidate on each of the provincial ballot papers. Funds are required for marketing as well.
To date no funds have been raised.
Any proposals for funding are welcome. Channels for financing of DiP are as follows:
Africahead Ipparts (AFA)
R 1'000'000 (ZAR) of the proceeds from the Africahead Ipparts (AFA), over the counter ICO, will be donated by Africahead to DiP.
Donations can be paid directly into DiP's bank account, or, can be made via Paypal and Payfast. The Paypal and Payfast donations will be transferred to DiP's bank account by Africahead.

Candidates for the 2019 general elections
National Ballot Paper
Marquard Dirk Pienaar - CV
Provincial Ballot Papers
Closer to the election, candidates will be announced.
DiP needs candidates. Preferably, they should speak the majority language of the province they will represent, and preferably they should be famous and attract many votes. These criteria should not discourage leaders who want to make themselves available. The change DiP promotes, will not happen quickly. Interested others can contact Marquard Pienaar at:
