Your Governance

To build the better country that we envision, it is of utmost importance that we have the right framework to ensure transparency into and accountability for our actions. LABOUR will ensure that there are adequate anti-corruption mechanisms ingrained in our government to ensure that all ministers of government and civil servants act in a manner that will rebuild the public’s trust and confidence. LABOUR will embark on a consultative process to achieve long-awaited constitutional, electoral and legislative reforms.
