|Appointment of Super Attorney General statement by National Deputy-Secretary (17 July 1998)|
The UDM is alarmed about a marked trend in Mbeki's appointments of essential positions and of centralising certain vital functions in his office. Mbeki's management style through these appointments start to portray the image of a power hunger, wants to control everything, person. The growing trend to appoint politicians in key positions in society is setting the alarm bells off. It can not be healthy for democracy if so much power is vested in the office of one person and if essential positions in the country is filled by politicians.
