The Minority Front or MF was founded on 1st November 1993 by Amichand Rajbansi and others to represent the Indian community within South Africa. The party believes in securing the interests of minorities.
Prior to the end of apartheid the predecessor to the Minority Front was the National People’s Party which had representation in the Indian only House of Delegates in the Tricameral Parliament.
The party secures most of its votes in Durban and KwaZulu-Natal.
The party failed to win any seats in its first contest in 1994 but took one seat in 1999, two seats in 2004 and back to one seat in 2009. In 2014 the party failed to gain any representation, managing just 22,589 votes and 0.12% of the vote.
