CAPE TOWN - With just 10 days to go before the elections, the Democratic Alliance (DA) says it is ready for its victory.

The party held its final Western Cape rally in Bellville on Saturday.

Thousands of people were bussed in from other parts of the province to show their support for the DA.

DA leader Helen Zille says it is essential that the party retains power in the Western Cape to show the rest of the country that it is able to better govern the province compared to the ANC.

"We want to continue going forward to make a better life for everybody in the Western Cape so that we can win the national government."

Some supporters say voting the DA into power in the Western Cape five years ago is the best decision they could have made as they have finally won their fight for basic services.

Zille says unemployment is their biggest priority.

She adds the Western Cape has seen the lowest unemployment rate during the last five years the DA has been in power.
