“AFTER ALL THE LOCAL MUNICIPAL ELECTIONS IN MAY 2011 IS ALL ABOUT THEIR FUTURE”
“HELP 1000 YOUNG WOMEN AND MEN IN PROVIDING BETTER SERVICE DELIVERY FOR YOU AND FOR THEIR OWN FUTURE”
Most young men and women between the ages of 18 to 24 are unemployed and face a bleak future. It is time that this section of society be given more opportunities. They are our future. Employers will be encouraged to give them jobs by getting a subsidy from the treasury of about R1000 towards their monthly salary for at least two years. The Aljama-ah Political Party wants to take this further and help these young people to win seats as ward councillors in the 2011 municipal elections. The Party has launched a recruitment campaign to attract and select young potential councillors, train them to be councillors and help them campaign to win seats. The Party has also launched an SMS fund raising project to get the community to help finance the recruitment, training and campaign costs of these young people who will come from all over the country. A donation of R10 paid by the SMS will cover the R500 registration costs of the 1000 young people to contest the elections. The target for the campaign is a half a million rand. This will be a sound investment in our youth and the future of the community. In Cape Town the Party Leader Ganief Hendricks will challenge the current Democratic Alliance mayor to give our youngsters a better opportunity to get the votes to win as many seats as possible. His expertise as a Human Resources Specialist and awards for creating new generation jobs will give him an edge over other mayoral candidates. Municipalities need more human resource development. While it will be a contest between Dan Plato and Ganief Hendricks the winners will be our young men and women. Muslim and other voters will be canvassed to vote for Ganief Hendricks rather than Dan Plato. The final mayoral candidate for the Party and the candidates for councillors will be voted for by Party members when the election is called. The Party came 8th out of 24 Parties in the 2009 national elections getting votes in 2000 voting stations in nine provinces.
