Limited ministerial cars for Western Cape MEC’s

MEC’s in the Western Cape have been set a limit on acquisition for their ministerial vehicles.

Provincial Transport MEC Robin Carlisle has announced that a limit of just over R500 000 is to be set on new official vehicles.

Carlisle says the decision was made in line with the province’s own ministerial handbook that was earlier announced by Premier Helen Zille.

The MEC said the amount that can be spent on a ministerial car will now range from about R360 000 to R510 000 instead of the existing 70% of MEC’S annual salaries that allows for cars at that cost as prescribed in the ministerial handbook.

This amount came to about R900 000, Carlisle says he hopes the rest of government will follow the Western Cape’s lead.
