House Chairperson, the quickest way to uncover a political party's attitude to the role of small business as the solution to our economic problems, is to do a word search of their manifesto.
In the DA's manifesto launched on Saturday, you will find
39 references to small businesses, not just in the section on small business but throughout the document. In the ANC's manifesto, small business gets 13 mentions and in the EFF's, only 3. Does that tell us something about their priority for growing our economy and creating jobs?
