The NFP supports this revised fiscal framework. The NFP is of the view that we would agree and accept that there are serious challenges in the country.
The appropriations committee that was formed some five years ago in the previous term is doing what it has to do to ensure that there is implementation and oversight. The Minister has clearly indicated the measures government intends to take to ensure that it fights fraud, corruption and maladministration. To the Minister, I want to say that we accept it, provided there is implementation and action taken to ensure that we alleviate fraud, corruption, maladministration and wasteful expenditure.
I would think that in the best interest of all South Africans in the country the NFP decides to support this and in view of that we believe that it will take us forward instead of rather trying to create more and more challenges that will not be in the interest of the poorest of the poor in this country. I thank you.
