Municipalities

Strategy

DiP is registered nationally. Therefore, anyone can represent his/her group in any municipality or province, or nationally, whilst earning non-party funded salaries.

In order to arrange more cohesive teams for local government, to ward off the current strife, the national policy of different governance regions will be duplicated locally, in the sense local governments will be controlled by the language group who controls the regional government.

The main reason for having a local goverment, controlled by the same language group who controls its provincial (regional) government, is, dividing local areas into different governance areas does not make sense practically, because local areas are too small to be viable economically.

Doing away or reducing the size of provincial governments, is another possibility; having basically just two levels of government; national and local. National government should be the smallest possible.
