The Democratic Alliance (DA) has reported that the party is enjoying exceptional growth in its membership in Gauteng, with over 26 000 valid members.
“The energy and passion we are seeing amongst our members bodes well for the upcoming elections and the growth in our numbers is a clear sign that the people of Gauteng are desperate for change,” said DA.
However, the party has held successful branch annual general meetings (AGMs) all over Gauteng, despite the challenges posed by the Coronavirus pandemic, as a crucial element of building a substantial political base for the party’s 2021 local election campaign.
The Branch AGMs allow the party to elect branch executives as well as delegates to higher structures in order to elect the Party’s leadership.
The newly elected branch committees will immediately start campaigning towards the 2021 elections and drive the message of the DA to every corner of Gauteng.
“We will continue to provide a platform for hope and change to the millions of residents in Gauteng,” the party said.
Meanwhile, DA said with service delivery collapsing throughout Gauteng, it is imperative that the DA wins the election next year so that it can get the administration back on track and enable the province to survive and prosper.
According to the party, they have proven track record for turning around the fortunes of a province, as evidenced by the party’s achievements in successfully governing the Western Cape for the past 11 years with successive clean audit outcomes and good governance.
“The residents of Gauteng deserve the same opportunity to thrive and prosper,” they said.
