'We are going to work together' Dugmore echoes Winde's sentiments on cohesion

The official leader of the opposition in the Western Cape has echoed the statement of the Premier saying the two parties will work together for a cohesive legislature.

The ANC's Cameron Dugmore made the comments the day after the DA's Alan Winde told Cape Talk that there is much to be done in the province and that it 'must be done together'.

Being effective, being vigilant, being constructive, being hardworking, being responsive that is what we want to do.

Cameron Dugmore, ANC leader - Western Cape Legislature

I don't want to lead an opposition that is going to throw their toys out of the cot and leave the legislature during the Premier's speech. That is not what we are going to do.
