IFP focuses on service delivery

2011-04-20 00:00

THE Inkatha Freedom Party is focusing a campaign around the voter, insisting that every voter has the right to a party that will deliver services.

The IFP’s slogan begins with the words: “What does this election hold in store for you?”

The party’s manifesto says it will promote local government that will make information about municipalities open. It will make public any potential conflicts of interest of councillors.

The IFP believes in a local government that works with the people to ensure that all taxes are spent to improve the community.

“We will stop waste, mismanagement and corruption; will prioritise spending on infrastructure and basic services; and block any bonuses for managers which are not earned through real performance.

“This election is about YOU! You have the power in your life, the lives of your family, friends and neighbours. Vote for the party that will deliver for YOU.

“Ask yourself, ‘Can I trust my candidate to deliver for ME?’ And don’t be afraid to ask your candidate, ‘What are you going to do for me and my community?”

The party undertakes to hold all its councillors accountable for their actions.

“We will insist on the highest standards of good governance, of ethical behaviour and of responsiveness to the community. We will fire those who fail to comply.”

The IFP has established a hotline at its head office for residents to voice concerns if they are unhappy with the conduct of its councillors. The number to call is 031 365 1354.
