Statement by the City’s Executive Mayor, Patricia de Lille Relocation not necessary, Government needs to cut cabinet Last night President Jacob Zuma indicated that Parliament may move from Cape Town to Pretoria to reduce the administrative costs of government. The issue is not one of whether Parliament moves to Pretoria to cut government wastage. The key issue is that government is too big. National Government needs to cut the cabinet, streamline and rationalise Parliament in order to save costs to the taxpayer, and work more efficiently. However, regardless of whether Parliament moves to Pretoria or not, we will always be happy to welcome the people of Gauteng and the rest of the country to Cape Town.
