Job opportunities through the Expanded Public Works Programme (EPWP) should benefit as many people possible.
The programme should be run fairly so that the same group of people do not benefit over and over again.
Councillors and other public representatives should not be involved in the process to prevent vote buying or job opportunities being abused by politicians.
To work best, EPWP jobs must involve skills training to help those who participate in the programme to get employed when it ends.
DA-run municipalities do and will maintain and share a database of EPWP workers to give participants a greater chance of finding jobs later, either in the private sector or other government departments.
The EPWP should be a programme people can trust, and one which benefits everyone fairly.
