Policies for PDP manifesto

Shayal Devi
Tuesday, May 06, 2014

THE People's Democratic Party will look at issues that affect people as they compose policies for the development of their manifesto which will be launched next month.

Party leader Felix Anthony said party members would be able to debate these policies.

"These will include but not be confined to fiscal policy, trade and investment, sugar, employment creation, consumer affairs, foreign affairs, defence, immigration and sport," he said.

"These policies will be further developed and will be a part of our manifesto.

"This is part of the real change that PDP stands for.

"There is much to be done on all fronts and we do not underestimate the task ahead.

"The PDP believes in the dignity, freedom and equality of all individuals founded on the core values of human rights, non-discrimination, social and economic justice.

"This is including the rights of workers, women, youth and other marginalised groups."

Some of the policies that make up the manifesto include education, health and equality guidelines.
