With the 2019 elections in full swing, Briefly.co.za evaluates the DA’s manifesto and what it aims to deliver.
What exactly are the different parties promising once they gain power?
In the case of the DA, rooting out corruption seems to be at the centre of it all.
DA leader, Mmusi Maimane, highlighted the plague of corruption during the party’s election manifesto.
He slammed the country’s leaders and revealed the impact they have had on the people of South Africa.
Maimane said, “While too many of our people didn't have water, some were drinking the finest champagne."
The full manifesto can be accessed here, but we’ve also listed some of the highlights below.
The DA rejects the proposal of land expropriation without compensation, but believes that land reform can promote job growth and boost the economy.
By tackling corruption within the Passenger Rail Agency (Prasa), the DA also hopes to improve the country’s public transport system.
To address the high unemployment rate, the DA aims to introduce a Jobs Act, which would offer special incentives to investors to increase job opportunities within the country.
The party promises a 3% growth of Gross Domestic Product (GDP).
Briefly.co.za also understands that the DA would reduce BEE and labour regulations for small businesses.
