Our Vision for Local Government
South Africa has made significant progress in many ways since 1994. But, our country is now at a crucial crossroads.
Constitutional and democratic institutions are under threat, as highlighted by the Constitutional Court’s Nkandla ruling. More than 8.2 million South Africans do not have a job, inflation is putting the most basic goods out of the reach of the majority of South Africans, the economy is suffering and we face a credit rating downgrade.
Corruption and empty promises are holding us back. This makes the 2016 Local Government Election the most crucial election since 1994.
The DA has a plan to bring the CHANGE we need to move South Africa forward again. Click here to read our full 2016 Local Government Election Manifesto and see what a DA government could do for you. Our Audio manifesto is available here and the Braille manifesto is available from a number of NGOs across the country, see list here.
