The South African Congress of Trade Union has welcomed the election of Kgalema Motlanthe as interim president for South Africa.

Cosatu spokesperson Patrick Craven says Motlanthe is a better suited candidate that can unify the ANC and the whole country .He adds that Motlanthe comes from the trade unions and has worked closely with Cosatu over many years and we are confident that he will do well.

Meanwhile the Democratic Alliance spokesperson Motlajo Thetjeng says Motlanthe is a better candidate for the ANC but we are not sure that he can unite the ANC because it is a party that has been fractioned by divisions.

β€˜On the basis on him leading the country we believe that he is a level headed person and we hope he will put the countries interest at heart and we wish him well.’’
