South Africa’s incoming President Cyril Ramaphosa has spoken about the composition of his new cabinet after registering as a Member of the sixth parliament.

He stressed that the team will be one that will have the right mix to help realize the plans the African national Congress, ANC sold to voters.

The next parliament is due to be constituted exactly two weeks after the May 8th national elections which the ruling ANC he leads won with fifty seven per cent of valid votes cast.

The electoral configuration in South Africa is such that the party with the highest number of seats deploys one of their own parliamentarians to become president. Ramaphosa took over from Jacob Zuma in February 2018 and led the ANC into the polls.

The presidential inauguration is slated for May 25th.
