Political experts have welcomed the move by President Jacob Zuma to meet with political leaders next week, saying it is a positive move for the country’s development.
The President announced on Wednesday that he would meet with the leaders of the various political parties on 27 August to discuss development issues and other challenges in the country.
He said it was necessary to have this kind of interaction. “The fact of the matter is that we all want to see South Africa succeeding.”
President Zuma was speaking following a meeting with the Democratic Alliance’s Parliamentary leader, Athol Trollip.
This move by the president is seen as a great move that will involve opposition parties taking part in major decision that the president has to make.
These meetings will possibly help the government develop plans that will recover the economy of the country.
