Local Government Elections Manifesto 2016

Local Government Elections Manifesto

Our promise and offer is simple. Where we govern, we want to build on the progress we have already made. Where we do not govern yet, we want to bring the change to your city or town that will:

STOP CORRUPTION. CREATE JOBS. DELIVER BETTER SERVICES.

We will do this by focusing on six key areas:

Opportunity

The ability to work is key to personal dignity.The DA is committed to creating opportunities, like jobs, so that people can improve their lives and provide for their families. To do this we will create a supportive environment where businesses want to invest, grow, and hire more people.

Responsive Government

A good government is one that is responsive to the needs and concerns of the people it serves. In a DA government, when you speak, we listen. We work with the community to find solutions to the challenges we face and create opportunities.

Safety

Ensuring the safety and wellbeing of residents gives meaning to freedom. South Africans need to feel safe and be safe in the cities and towns they call home. To do this, we collaborate and innovate to make crime-ridden and deprived communities safer.
