The ANC Youth League, including its president Collen Maine, said it wants President Cyril Ramaphosa to include a substantial number of young people when he appoints his Cabinet.
Maine, who is the former North West Province Local Government and Human Settlements MEC, said Ramaphosa should deliver 20% youth representation, which was a resolution of the 2017 Nasrec conference.
“We expect that when the president appoints his Cabinet he will take 20% into consideration because that is the resolution of the ANC,” said Maine.
He said the ANC should adapt to the reality of that the majority of the country’s population were young people
“Therefore it (ANC) should give young people a responsibility, and young people would bring new ideas.
