We are not clear on how political parties will assure job creation - analysts
As the 2019 elections results slowly trickle in, analysts remain sceptical about some of the promises made by the three major political parties in their campaigning and the implications this will have for them.
One of the key priorities emphasised by parties is job creation. The issue has come up for most of the elections day with youth saying they won't be voting because of the problem.
Speaking to Karima on the Karima Brown Show, economist Thabi Leoka says 25 years into democracy many South Africans have been particularly disappointed by the rate of unemployment.
She questions how these parties are going to alleviate joblessness.
We are voting and we are still not clear on how political parties are ensuring that South Africans will find jobs.Thabi Leoka, Economist
Political commentator Eusebius McKaiser agrees with Leoka.
I do think when it comes to feasibility to specify how we are going to create jobs, get off the low economic growth path we are on and of course inequality - all of these things are enmeshed. I think the main parties have been quite tardy on the detail.Eusebius McKaiser, Political commentator & author
I think today, fundamentally has not been about policy. I think we are going to look back on this election and my prediction is that it would have been fundamentally about leadership and restoring trust.Eusebius McKaiser, Political commentator & author
He says restoring trust and credible leadership through voting will hopefully in turn deal with inequality and joblessness.
