Gordhan mum on position after elections
The Finance Minister says decisions about his future after this year's elections are up to Jacob Zuma.
DAVOS - Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan told Eyewitness News any decisions about his future after this year's elections are up to President Jacob Zuma.
He has also spoken about the reaction of international investors to South Africa at this year's World Economic Forum in Davos.
Gordhan says when he introduces himself he is asked about our economy and given condolences on the passing of Nelson Mandela.
"Many convey a collective message of condolence to our country with the loss of Nelson Mandela and that reminds them of where we come from."
When asked directly if he would still be finance minister at next year's Davos meeting, Gordhan said, "That's for the president to decide after the elections so let's leave it for that."
The minister has been seen as a key figure in instilling fiscal discipline in South Africa.
Meanwhile, Gordhan said last week that South Africa should stop using only gross domestic product (GDP) as a measure of the success of the economy.
He told delegates that a country's GDP numbers did not tell the full story.
