EFF: Zuma Is Gone, Now Dissolve Parliament

The EFF in parliament UPDATE: ANC puts motion of no confidence against Zuma
| 17 February, 2018, 02:13

Maimane said Parliament had already been found to have failed to hold President Jacob Zuma accountable in the Constitutional Court Nkandla judgment and should now do the right thing.

On Monday, the joint sitting of the National Assembly and National Council of Provinces will debate the president's State of the Nation Address. This has necessitated that the election of the President, which was initially scheduled for Friday, 16 February 2018, be changed to today at 14.00.

The 400-member parliament, dominated by the ruling African National Congress party, is expected to select Ramaphosa to finish his predecessor's term, which ends with elections in 2019. The Chief Justice is responsible for presiding over the election of a new President, or may designate another judge to do so.

While the ANC can not bring its own motion, which party chief whip Jackson Mthembu said would have been "ideal", parliamentary rules allow a party to bring an amendment to a motion.


Briefing the media, ANC Treasurer General Paul Mashatile said the decision on the motion of no- confidence was taken at a special meeting of party caucus in Parliament Wednesday morning.

The president has apparently told his allies that there would be dire consequences for the ANC should they attempt to forcibly remove him. The EFF had written to Mbete, requesting that the vote be done via secret ballot, but Mbete replied to the party saying it assists Parliament's "efficiency in its oversight of the Executive", according to the statement.

"We are [still] going to the House". He later apologised to the nation and now regards Zuma as having damaged the ANC and the country.

If there was one place the former president probably hated the most, it would be Parliament, where Zuma often got "burnt" by the opposition.
