BOTSWANA CONGRESS PARTY (BCP) MANIFESTO 1999

Guaranteeing a better future for all

Foreword

The Botswana Congress Party is presenting its manifesto to the nation for the first time.

This manifesto is but a summary of the problems, issues and challenges which face our nation on the eve of the new millennium.

As a party with a difference in quality, style and truthfulness to the needs of our people we have carefully identified these issues and required policy action and programmes.

We call on Batswana to take us on the basis of what we pledge in this manifesto.

The policies and programmes contained in this manifesto show our deep concern about the problems which face our young people, women, the workers, parents, employers, business owners and the non- governmental sector.

I am pleased to say with confidence that as a responsible political party we are not only concerned but determined to address the problems of underdevelopment which still afflict our people.

I call on Batswana to give us the mandate to rule.

It is only with that mandate that we shall show the fallacy of the BDP’s irresponsible claim that problems of poverty, unemployment, school leaver, low productivity, etc. are worldwide and therefore cannot be solved by the government.

I thank you.

Michael K. Dingake May, 1999
