DA candidates ready to win and lead the Bay

BY Athol Trollip, DA Mayoral Candidate: Nelson Mandela Bay

The DA is proud to announce its list of candidates, for the 2016 local government elections, which we believe will usher in a new era of change and good governance under a DA administration in Nelson Mandela Bay.

In our ongoing endeavour to build an open opportunity society for all South Africans, framed by efficiency, the DA has completed our candidate selection process before any of our opposition.

The DA has a candidate selection process that is designed to select the best, “fit for purpose” people, who contest for positions in an environment of freedom, fairness and opportunity. We will not compromise on this, as it ensures that the best possible elected councillors will work for the communities, in the interest of good governance and service delivery. The DA’s comprehensive, competitive and democratic candidate selection process, comprising of rigorous online testing, biography evaluation, personal interviews, and performance assessments for incumbents and new applicants, has yielded the strongest possible team of candidates, all “fit for purpose” and ready to lead the Bay.

These lists have been ratified by the Provincial Executive Committee, the Federal Candidates Election Committee and the Federal Executive. The DA is confident that this is the best possible team: diverse, dynamic, competent, committed, capable and passionate. As we prepare to govern, the DA's selection process has recognised and reinforced the sentiments of many South Africans; that we need honest public representatives who will work tirelessly to improve service delivery for the people of this Metro. This year, the DA’s commitment to good governance, job creation and corruption-fighting will be the reason for change in our municipality. This team of candidates is a reflection of all the communities and constituencies of the Metro.

We are now poised to deliver change and good governance in Nelson Mandela Bay.
