The leader of the Democratic Alliance, John Steenhuisen, has stated the reasons behind his call for President Cyril Ramaphosa to cut the government, saying that the number of people in the executive branch has not been effective in ending the country’s disaster.
The The DA’s motion of no confidence in the government was rejected at the national meeting yesterday and voted 131 in favor and 231 against.
Steenhuisen says that despite the result of the vote, he believes that members of parliament are still ineffective and incompetent, as evidenced by the current lack of electricity, high unemployment, fuel price increases and corruption.
“The fact is that we need to keep up the pressure on Ramaphosa to get rid of this poverty-stricken regime and replace it with a smaller, cut-down minister who is focusing more on doing the job in SA. I pointed out yesterday that a country like Argentina has 21 MPs, China with 20 MPs. We have 38 in addition to the Deputy Minister. People are occupying an executive branch in SA and yet we have not overcome poverty, unemployment or hunger.
