  • Introduce a constituency-based electoral system to make MPs more accountable
  • Make communities safer by putting 250 000 properly trained police officers on the streets

  • Work with the private sector to provide quality, affordable health care for all
  • Ensure that the social grants system is a means to lift people out of poverty
  •  Dedicate an extra R 10 billion to speed up land reform and provide training and support for emerging farmers
  • Provide quality education by training 15 000 more teachers per year and giving every child a textbook for every subject
  • Increase the NSFAS budget to R 16 billion so that no student is denied further education because they cannot afford it.

  • Provide 7 million EPWP opportunities to alleviate poverty and provide a step-up for job seekers
  • Make South Africa a nation of entrepreneurs by cutting red tape and providing more support and training for small business
