The African National Congress in North West says it welcomes the decision of the NEC to deploy  Kaobitsa Bushie Maape as the Premier Elect of North West Province. The party said the process to deploy Maape followed the interviews of three candidates that were recommended to the national structures by the Interim provincial committee (IPC).

IPC conveyed its gratitude to the outgoing Premier, Job Mokgoro for his sterling work of guiding the provincial government during the most turbulent times as the Premier. “His administrative skills are not lost to the people of our province, and the ANC will continue to benefit from them.

North West IPC coordinator Hlomani Chauke said the appointment of Maape as the Premier Elect is intended to entrench the work done by the ANC led provincial government and expedite the rollout of radical socio-economic transformation in the province.

“The IPC firmly believes that Cde Maape is equal to the task expected to be delivered as outlined in our election manifesto.”

Meanwhile, Mokgoro has not yet tendered his resignation.
