Harold McGluwa, MPL The Democratic Alliance welcomes Sylvia Lucas’s inauguration as Premier of the Northern Cape tomorrow. We can only hope that unlike her predecessors, she succeeds in taking the provincial government forward. Lucas is an old hand at political oversight by way of her having served on legislature portfolio committees for a number of years. She thus has the experience and the insight to fare adequately in her new role. We hope that she directs her focus towards issues that have the ability to change the lives of the people of the Northern Cape for the better, and that she makes use of her limited time wisely.
