The filling of funded vacancies is still a challenge. The capacity constraints to enable the PSC to attend to the backlog of cases are still a problem.
As I conclude, I would like to say that the role of transforming a society by marshalling a Public Service that is efficient, effective and capable is no task for the weak. The overwhelming elective majority reminds us of the trust the people of South Africa have in the ANC.
Therefore, the clarion call is louder than ever: The people of South Africa from all walks of life yearn for a leaner, cleaner and more capable state - a responsibility this ANC has wholeheartedly embraced. That is the South Africa that the Freedom Charter envisaged.
The ANC supports the vote. Thank you. [Applause.]
