Creating jobs and developing the economy are central to next year’s general election, reflecting South Africa’s struggle to create jobs.
Pledges are included in every party’s election manifesto. Is it possible for any of them to keep their promises? According to economists, this is not the case. In order to get their vote, you have to sound lofty.
Patriotic Alliance is another political organization that promises change to South Africans, particularly the youth. They have vowed to create jobs and assist in local village development. The party has made strong assertions in their manifestos, even claiming that if elected, they will reinstate religion in schools.
Since its inception, the party has consistently stated that its mandate is to offer an alternative to both the Democratic Alliance and the Republic Party. They have worked hard to obtain seats in the Western Cape and Gauteng, and with such promises, they may be able to secure seats.
They have said on their official website and elsewhere that they are committed to assisting small towns in developing and including young people in all aspects of their work. They have also stated that South Africans should be given priority when employing in South Africa. Gayton McKenzie, the Alliance’s head, tweeted this on Twitter, along with a video of young people working on the site.
The party has demonstrated commitment to its work by posting evidence of its work in communities. This shows that they uphold their commitments and work hard to empower everyone in our country.
The party is alleged to have promised Tshwane’s youth job opportunities. It is for this reason that the party gained momentum in Soshanguve and gained the support of the younger generation.
It is evident that the party believes it can bring about change. It plans to take over in the next election.
