The IFP Gauteng has taken note of the
development in the Gauteng Provincial Legislature, that being the
appointment of the new Economic Development MEC, Eric Xayiya.
IFP Caucus Leader in the Gauteng Provincial
Legislature, Bonginkosi Dhlamini said, "We welcome the newly
sworn MEC with the hope that he will be able to carry on from
where the late MEC Nkonsiphendule Kolisile left off.”
Dhlamini said, "The Department of Economic
Development is one of the key departments in the province with
the clear mandate to promote economic growth and economic
development. Consequently, the IFP as an opposition party in the
Gauteng legislature is keen on working together with MEC Xayiya
to make sure that his department delivers on its mandate."
In additions Dhlamini said, “The IFP Gauteng
is a staunch believer of economic emancipation of the people of
Gauteng. We therefore hope that the positive signs that were
already showing during the tenure of late MEC Kolisile will not
fade but be advanced by the arrival of MEC Xayiya."
