COMPETENCE | CONSTRUCTIVE | COMPASSIONATE
Competence is about listening to the people. By listening, a political party finds ways on how to meet the aspirations of society by incorporating their views into its policies. Competence is also about having foresight. The SDP eschews short-term gratification and is committed to laying the foundation for longer-term success. We have drawn up several alternative policies in key areas such as lowering the cost of living, housing, healthcare, population growth, education, the economy and others. Many of our ideas have even been adopted by the government. Compassion is what will prevent greed from tearing our society asunder. A government must have a strong sense of economic achievement tempered by an equally robust attitude of compassion. Only then can we ensure prosperity for all.
