The South African Rugby Union (SARU), Cricket South Africa (CSA), Athletics South Africa (ASA) and Netball South Africa (NSA) were challenged to defend their racial quota targets before the Labour Court in court papers served with the court this morning.\r\nThe papers were served by labour movement Solidarity and minority rights group AfriForum. Both parties said this is the \u201cnext step\u201d in their battle \u201cagainst unbecoming (political) interference in South Africa sport\u201d. - betfair promo codes.\r\nThey say quotas in sport do not conform to local and\/or international legislation. \u201cIt is a crying shame that the ANC endorses such strict racial quotas. However, it is not surprising. Local racial laws and international agreements are idle words for the ANC,\u201d said Johan Kruger, Deputy Chief Executive of Solidarity.\r\nAccording to Kruger the ANC\u2019s racial ideology has been obvious for a long time and the party can no longer hide its racial motives. \u201cThe ANC\u2019s practice of withholding local sportsmen and women of opportunities because of unlawful racial quotas must be condemned by the courts,\u201d says Kruger.\r\n\u201cWe request an order that the court declare that the Transformation Charter insofar as it pertains to demographic profiling as invalid, and of no force and effect. We further request that the court declare the agreements between the parties insofar as it pertains to quotas, as invalid and of no force and effect, and that sporting bodies are interdicted from applying quotas in determining team selection at a national, provincial, club or school level,\u201d says Kruger.\r\nAccording to Kallie Kriel, Chief Executive of AfriForum, merits should be the only criterion in the compilation of sports teams. \u201cThe enforcement of racial quotas and political interference in South African sport directly violates the rules and regulations of international sports bodies. That is why AfriForum is going to send a delegation to several international sports bodies within the next months,\u201d Kriel said.
