Cape Town - ANC insiders confirmed this week that the party was in discussions over a possible change to the structure of government and that the 34-member cabinet could be reduced.

ANC national chairperson Baleka Mbete told the newspaper that she agreed with the criticism levelled at government about its size and said she did not think they were likely to keep things as they are.
