ANC Caucus Welcomes changes to the National Executive
5 August 2021
The African National Congress Parliamentary Caucus welcomes and fully supports President Cyril Ramaphosa’s presidential prerogative to reconfigure the workings of Government departments and Ministries as well as change his National Executive aimed at improving the capacity and effectiveness of the state machinery to carry out its constitutional obligations.
We wish the appointed cadres great strength and courage in fulfilling their leadership deployments and wish those who will no longer be part of the Executive well in their future endeavours and thank them profusely for their service to the Nation.
Caucus notes and appreciates that the country faces many pressing and urgent challenges and with these appointments we hope the Government’s ongoing efforts of addressing the impact of Covid – 19 on the lives of citizens will be bolstered.
We look upon this collective to ensure the continuation of the vaccine roll – out programme under adjusted alert level 3 as well speeding up initiatives aimed at rebuilding the economy through recovery measures as well as ensuring peace and security following the tragic events of the past few weeks.
Caucus greatly applauds the President’s decision to ensure that the changes in the National Executive have included women in strategic positions especially during Women’s Month in the Year of Mama Charlotte Maxeke.
Caucus further congratulates those cadres who have been serving diligently within its structures and in the fullness of time such vacancies will be filled following due processes and organizational protocols and announcements made in that regard.
Issued by the Office of the Chief Whip, Hon. Pemmy Majodina
