Mr Speaker, the North West ANC-led government continues to identify its character as a government that is incompetent, unaccountable and a massive failure. It is worth noting here that not a single North West provincial department received a clean audit from the Auditor-General for the 2012-13 financial year. The Auditor-General has highlighted that unauthorised, irregular and/or fruitless expenditure was incurred by 80% of all departments. The Auditor-General has confirmed the trend identified in the 2011-12 financial year, that the North West government is in regression. This year 64% of departments have regressed, which is up from the 54% of last year.
It is evident that the North West ANC-led government doesn't care for the residents of the province. It is so glaringly obvious through the lack of service delivery and development in the province. But, like in Tlokwe Municipality in Potchefstroom, the people of North West have realised that only the DA can, and will, champion their concerns, and that only the DA delivers. [Interjections.] The people of North West will vote for a better life for all in 2014. They will vote DA! [Interjections.]
