Gauteng Provincial Government
The Premier
The mandate of the Premier is defined by the Constitution which states that the Premier performs executive, policy, legislative, intergovernmental and ceremonial functions and responsibilities as defined in the Constitution of the Republic of South Africa.
Section 127 Powers and functions of Premiers
The Premier of a province has the powers and functions entrusted to that office by the Constitution and any legislation.
