The Democratic Alliance (DA) has adopted a resolution to do away with the VAT increase which former Finance Minister Malusi Gigaba announced during his 2018 Budget Speech in February.

The DA national elective conference, under way Pretoria, says the VAT increase will cripple the poor and lead to the escalation of crime.

The conference has also resolved that it will allow job-seekers to opt out of the minimum wage by settling for a lesser salary.

The DA’s congress is currently adopting resolutions which it will offer to South Africans should it wrestle power from the ruling party in the 2019 national elections.

It says youth that have been unemployed for over a year will have the right to enter into any employment agreements with an employer.

This in-line with any conditions they are comfortable with.

The conference will also make an announcement on its resolution regarding Land Reform and Education.
