Cape Town - The newly appointed DA premier candidate, “premier of jobs” as dubbed by DA leader Mmusi Maimane, Alan Winde says he is looking to focus on job creation and access to housing in the province.
Winde who currently serves as MEC for economic opportunities was nominated as the DA premier candidate to succeed Helen Zille who will complete her second term next year.
He said his term in office will ensure that health, education and housing are prioritised.
“I will continue focusing on jobs, health and education which is the primary constitutional mandate of the province, education and health is where much of the budget goes. My own focus will also be on safety and security, public transport and resilience,” said Winde.
Winde was competing against provincial leader Bonginkosi Madikizela and DA MP David Maynier for the post. Madikizela took himself out of the running for mayor to contest for the premiership job.
