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."
