    III.    Where We Stand: Government For the People

  • Sovereignty rests with the people from whom all authority is derived; at both national and local levels, democratic governance, in which power is exercised in the name and on behalf of the people, must be real and meaningful;

  • Operate a Clean, Efficient and Purposeful Administration, at the same time Improve the Economy in order to Boost Production to Create Employment and Wealth;
  • Strict observance of good political as well as economic governance principles, including waging a relentless war on poverty and depravation on one hand while vigorously combating embezzlement, corruption and all forms of official malpractices;
  • Re-build capacity in the state institutions as well as restore professionalism, including adaptation t o m o d e r n technology to bring administrative systems and management processes in line with modern standards;
  • Economic transformation to be triggered by truly significant investment, [both private and public] targeting our considerable potentialities in the areas of water and other natural resources for development, which will serve as basis for the development of agriculture and agri-business, industrialisation, tourism, trade, transport and regional Complemented with the maintenance of stability, a functional system of justice, the removal of bureaucratic and other impediments as well as stepped-up investment in physical and economic infrastructure, such a strategy is needed to boost productivity and create sustainable employment for our teaming youthful population.
