The DA has urged the public to hold government accountable by participating in the party's process of evaluating cabinet ministers, launched yesterday.
Briefing the media during the launch of the party's cabinet report card website (www.da.org.za), DA parliamentary leader Sandra Botha said the process accorded the public a rare opportunity to rate government ministers.
"There are very few avenues available to members of the public through which they can register their satisfaction with or disapproval of the government. It is the DA's hope that this webpage provides such a forum," she said.
On the website, members of the public will be able to rate the performance of the 30 national cabinet ministers in 2007.
The marks from the webpage would then be used by the DA when it compiled its yearly cabinet report card in December.
"The page is designed to allow a person to vote only once every 30 minutes, in order to avoid block voting," Botha said.
In the same process last year, the DA's report card gave President Thabo Mbeki a score of 5 out of 10, his deputy Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka 4 out of 10, while Minister in the Presidency Essop Pahad scored 3 out of 10. - Sapa
