    Ferdinand Hartzenberg is a South African politician and was the second and last leader of the Conservative Party in South Africa between 1993 and its merger with the Freedom Front in 2004. Originally a mielie farmer from Lichtenburg in the Transvaal, Hartzenberg was Minister of Education from 1979 to 1982 in the government of PW Botha. He was then one of the more conservative members of the ruling National Party (NP). Together with Andries Treurnicht and other NP members dissatisfied with what they saw as increasing 'liberalism' in the ruling NP, he left the NP in 1982 to found the right wing Conservative Party (CP). Hartzenberg became deputy leader. Hartzenberg became leader of the CP after Treurnicht's death in April 1993.
