We are among those in this Country who feel that we have become a group of politically homeless nomads. As a result of this quiet anxiety of uncertainty many people choose not to vote as it makes very little difference to their lives and even if they do vote, the person in whichever party crosses the finishing line, does not represent them. By establishing The Taking the Initiative party, that no longer needs to be the case.
The Taking the Initiative party was founded primarily because we have had enough of our voices being ignored and we feel that it is time to make a change. We have had enough of being taken for granted and now we are setting out to bring an end to this.
We feel that the time has come to have a seat at the table in order to take part in the decision making, which affects us. The Taking the Initiative party is the vehicle that can allow people to bring change to their communities.
Our aim is simple. We want to encourage communities through Business and this will include assisting to set up businesses, creating employment and offering support to small and medium sized business, thereby helping them to reach their true potential as we believe in doing this we will create opportunities for growth and encourage self-sufficiency within the community.
We are on a path of ensuring that we concentrate our efforts on solutions to the everyday problems that hold communities back from fulfilling their true potential. We are about inclusion in every aspect, so that together we can build a more democratic future and shape our Country for the generations to come.
We will get our candidates elected to bring about an agenda of change and will ensure that everything that we do has its roots in our commitment to use entrepreneurism to empower communities to do something for themselves and for others.
We will highlight and celebrate models of best practice and above all we will seek solutions to problems and implement them boldly.
It is clear to us that the current political system is aligned with one end of society or the other. We are about inclusivity and empowerment.
