Statement by Western Cape Premier, Marthinus van Schalkwyk
The Western Cape Minister of Community Safety, Leonard Ramatlakane, has today been sworn in as Acting Premier because I am to be sworn in as a member of the National Assembly. Minister Ramatlakane will hold this position until such time as the election of a new Premier, by the members of the newly reconstituted Provincial Parliament, can take place.
It has been my privilege and honour to serve as Premier of this province, and I thank the members of our Provincial Cabinet, our Director-General, our Heads of Department and every member of our public service for their support and continued professionalism.
Our Coalition Government will continue to build on the stability and success of the last two and a half years.
