“Furthermore, there is adherence to fiscal and budgetary discipline. We shall change this culture from day one.
“The inequalities in our system today are huge and have created enormous distortions in human capital development, infrastructural expansion and economic growth. I want to fix our dear State by creating opportunities for all classes of people and at all times.
