Premier Helen Zille Rated as Best Premier

10 June 2012

The Public Service Commission has released a report on the performance of the Office of the Premier in each of South Africa's nine provinces for 2010/2011.

The report, published in March 2012, awarded the Office of the Premier in the Western Cape a score of 82% - the highest score out of all the provinces. The next two highest scores were awarded to Gauteng (77%) and the Northern Cape (64%).

  • Professional ethics.
  • Efficiency, economy and effectiveness.
  • Development orientation.
  • Impartiality and fairness.
  • Public participation in policy-making.
