The ANC has started the process of removing the executive mayoral system in Cape Town. Their claimed reasons:
What a crock.A desire to see an inclusive government in the city that "worked for all communities equally".
The MEC's preference for a "stable government representing 91 percent of the electorate instead of the current system only representing 51 percent of the electorate".
"The desire to see a city characterised by extraordinary unity and collective leadership."
"The importance of the 2010 soccer World Cup for the city and the need for stability in the lead-up to this important event for the city, the province, country and the continent.
"The MEC's consideration for changing the type of municipality in the city is done with the interest of the people of Cape Town in mind and not against a party or individual,"
