https://www.businesslive.co.za/bd/n...a-unlikely-to-announce-his-cabinet-on-monday/South Africans will have to wait a few more days before President Cyril Ramaphosa announces his new Cabinet.
Ramaphosa was inaugurated in Pretoria on Saturday after being elected president at the first sitting of the sixth parliament on Wednesday.
The expectation was that he would announce his Cabinet at the beginning of the new week. But the presidency said on Sunday the announcement would be made later in the week.
According to the Constitution when an election of the National Assembly is held, the cabinet, the deputy president, ministers and deputy ministers remain competent to function until the person elected president assumes office.
This means that there is currently no executive.
