The Democratic Alliance kick-started it’s 2019 general elections campaign with a voter registration outreach programme in Port Elizabeth’s Northern Areas on Thursday.
MP Natasha Mazzone joined the party’s Eastern Cape Premier candidate, Nqaba Bhanga, in also unveiling the party’s election registration poster.
The pair also went on a walkabout at Cleary Park Shopping Centre to highlight to the public the importance of registering to vote.
Mazzone said the party strategically chose Nelson Mandela Bay.
“The city was taken away through an undemocratic process and the people of PE are angry because they want the government that they voted for,” she said.
Bhanga said that “South Africans have a last chance to register to vote in the elections on 26 and 27 January 2019 at their local polling stations”.
“While doing this we highlighted the message that only the people of this country have the power to remove the failing ANC government, come the 2019 national elections,” he said.
