Cape Town – Communications Minister Ayanda Dlodlo on Wednesday downplayed suggestions that government wants to create a so-called super presidency by having a hand in budgetary processes.
During a media briefing following the Cabinet meeting, Dlodlo said Cabinet approved the mandate paper for the 2018 Budget.
“This will further drive the implementation of the National Development Plan (NDP). The paper strengthens the alignment of the budget to the Medium Term Strategic Framework. It establishes a systematic basis for making choices among competing priorities within limited resources,” she said, reading from a statement.
