History of Green politics in South AfricaEdit
The Ecology Party was established in November 1989, but disbanded after recruiting only 1 800 members.
Judy Sole founded the Government by the People Green Party (GPGP) in 1999, and the party has contested elections as the Green Party of South Africa since the 2000 local elections. In 2018 the leadership of the party was restructured, to form a round-table like structure. A steering team was formed consisting of Anisha Garib,Judy Sole and Conrad Beyers. A new constitution including a 10 point manifesto was adopted by the GPSA which is inline with green movements on a global scale.
