A new coalition made up of twenty-one right wing parties, known as Afrikaner National Front (Afrikaner Volksfront or AVF) was founded by several former leaders of the South African Defence Force (SADF). Gen. Constant Viljoen was elected as the leader of the movement. The AVF was founded as result of mounting right wing resistance to the multi party negotiation process held at Kempton Park.
