Put value to your vote - De Lille

2011-03-26 14:19
Johannesburg - All South Africans needed to put value to their vote, Patricia de Lille said at the DA's election campaign launch in Kliptown on Saturday.

"Vote for change, we will only get change if we vote," de Lille told supporters at the Walter Sisulu Square in Soweto.

Voters needed to lend their vote to a political party and not just give it to them, she said.

"Lend your vote to the DA for five years and if we don't deliver take it away and give it to another party," De Lille said to huge applause from supporters.

She said the DA had shown that it could deliver services and Cape Town was a "shining beacon".

"DA has shown it delivers."

A sea of people in blue shirts streamed into the square on Saturday morning for the launch of the DA's election campaign and manifesto.

Thousands of supporters wearing blue t-shirts with the DA emblem arrived in buses from all over Gauteng to take part in the launch.

Supporters of all ages, men, women and children joined in the days festivities, with people singing and clapping to the live music.

De Lille was the party's candidate for the mayor of Cape Town in the upcoming municipal elections.
