Growing Grassroots Democracy

How much power do ordinary South Africans have in our political processes? How often are we excluded when it comes to making decisions about our communities and development? The Third Republic is here to help you fight for your community.


Our Mission

Our mission is to expand and deepen democratic participation in South Africa. Our electoral system gives too much power to parties at the expense of ordinary South Africans and their communities. We want all South Africans to fully enjoy their rights to assembly, association, and political activity.

Our Vision

Our vision is a South African political system that is robust, transparent, and accountable, where communities have a voice in their own development and the public system is professional and responsive.
