CAPE TOWN - Two former ANC members are trying to garner support for their campaign which calls on people not to vote for the ruling party in 7 May polls.

Former deputy Health Minister Nozizwe Madlala-Routledge and former Intelligence Minister Ronnie Kasrils have asked South Africans to take a stand against fraud and corruption by spoiling their votes.

The no vote campaign will be officially launched at Wits University on Tuesday.

Madlala-Routledge says the aim is to get the public not to vote for the ruling party or spoil their ballots.

"They can take their ballot paper and write 'no' which means we aren't supporting any of these parties because we've looked at registered parties' manifestos and there are people who don't want to support these parties."
