Bisho - Eastern Cape opposition parties have urged newly elected provincial Premier Oscar Mabuyane to prioritise job creation.
This follows his unopposed election as the provincial Premier in the Eastern Cape Legislature in Bhisho on Wednesday.
DA MPL Nqaba Bhanga, who is the leader of the opposition in the legislature, reminded Mabuyane that 1.2 million people in the province were unemployed.
Bhanga said Mabuyane must not forget those who voted for him.
"Your allegiance must be with the people of the Eastern Cape and the Constitution of our country," said Bhanga.
