The budget that was tabled by the Premier highlights the ANC government`s commitment to improve the quality of life of our people in the province. It is a budget that is responsive and sensitive to the needs that the ordinary person faces on daily basis such as unemployment and lack of basic services.

The Provincial Executive Committee (PEC) was elected in the 6th Provincial Conference in 2008, popularly known as the Moshaweng Conference. That was the most chaotic, violent and divisive ANC conference in the post 1990 political era. The elected PEC was then saddled with the responsibility of rebuilding the organisation and to ensure that there is a semblance of unity in the province. Building unity after such a catastrophic epic event was a daunting task but a task worth undertaking as unity is the heart of the ANC, the bedrock upon which the organisation was founded in 1912.
The measurement of any collective is not when the executive tasks in the normal course of organisational work, but when leadership is confronted with the execution of mandates in trajectories which requires high political morals and discipline.
