The governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) has congratulated newly elected African National Congress (ANC) leader, Cyril Ramaphosa.

Mr Ramaphosa beat Nkosazana Dlamini-Zumah, immediate past Chairperson of the African Union Commission at the primaries to succeed Jacob Zuma as the party’s flagbearer.

In a press release on Thursday, December 28, signed by Acting General Secretary John Boadu, the NPP said they wish to congratulate “Cyril Ramaphosa, the outgoing Deputy President, for emerging victorious at the ANC’s 54th Elective Conference in Johannesburg”.

“The NPP is convinced that the election of Ramaphosa, whose campaign primarily centred on the fight against corruption, the promotion of good governance and to increase economic growth, will prove to be one of the most momentous in South Africa’s recent history. We are convinced that Ramaphosa has the wherewithal to transform the country’s economy and to deliver prosperity to the South African people.

“Finally, we wish to assure our sister party, the ANC, that the NPP, as usual, is available and willing to cooperate with the party [the ANC] in various areas of bilateral cooperation for mutual benefits. We wish them the very best in the general elections scheduled for 2019,” the statement added.
