The Democratic Alliance is to launch its 2019 election manifesto today at the Rand Stadium in Johannesburg. They are hoping to convince the people of South Africa to give them a chance, not only in Gauteng, but in various other provinces as well.
The leader of the party is set to address over 20 000 Democrats. The official programme will kick start at 10:00, and Maimane will take to the podium at 12:50 this afternoon.

According to the Western Cape Premier candidate for the Democratic Alliance - Alan Winde, the manifesto will focus on the following:
- Fair access to real, long-term jobs
- Creating an honest and a professional police service
- Securing our borders
- Stopping corruption
- Speeding up service delivery
In terms of safety, there are priority areas that get the resources that they need. We have already set up the realm unit. We welcome the Anti-Gang Unit, that has to be beefed up a bit more. We want to focus more on where crime is prevailing.Alan Winde - DA Western Cape premier candidate
