Tshwane – President Cyril Ramaphosa has made a compelling call to all political factions to set aside their differences and work collaboratively in the wake of a clear message from the South African electorate. Delivering his inaugural speech as President and leader of the seventh administration, Ramaphosa emphasized the urgent need for unity at the Union Buildings on Wednesday.

In a stirring address that elicited rapturous applause, President Ramaphosa highlighted that South Africans have unequivocally voiced their demands for robust leadership and visionary governance.

“The people of South Africa have conveyed their deep impatience with political infighting and the ceaseless blame game among politicians and political entities. They want their needs and aspirations prioritised, and they demand cooperative governance for the good of our nation,” stated Ramaphosa.

Standing from the amphitheatre at the Union Buildings, Ramaphosa stressed that he is committed to serving as a President for all South Africans, ensuring their voices are heard and their needs addressed.

Key Objectives for the Seventh Administration

The President laid out essential objectives reflective of the people’s needs, which include:

  • Stimulating a growing and transformed economy
  • Tackling crime
  • Improving housing and infrastructure

“We have heard you,” Ramaphosa assured the public. “I commit to being a President for all South Africans, to uphold our Constitution, safeguard our democracy, and work with those who share the dream of a better life for all. I pledge to care for the poor and vulnerable, support those in need, and strengthen our nation to be more resilient, equal, and unified,” affirmed the President.

A Government of National Unity

The recent National and Provincial Elections, held on 29 May 2024, culminated in no single political party securing a clear majority. As a result, South Africa is now set to be governed by a Government of National Unity.

“In their multitude, with diverse voices, South Africans have expressed their desires, concerns, and expectations through the ballot. We accept and respect the results of the elections. The will of the people shall be honoured unequivocally,” reiterated Ramaphosa.
