Madokwe, Ms P to ask the Minister in The Presidency for Electricity
With reference to his reply to question 2043 on 9 June 2023, how does he reconcile the cost of his office to the taxpayer being over R13 million per annum, while the National Assembly was informed that his office does not have a specific budget and will not therefore need direct oversight of its own dedicated Portfolio Committee?
a) The staff establishment for the private office of members of the executive is done in accordance with the approved 2019 guide for members of the executive in order to provide administrative support to the member in discharging his/her delegated constitutional duties. The operational cost relating to the Minister in the Presidency responsible for Electricity is drawn from the budget of the Presidency.
