DA Leader Mmusi Maimane in parliament

Democratic Alliance (DA) has requested postponement of the motion of #NoConfidence against President Jacob Zuma pending outcome of Constitutional Court application by the United Democratic Movement (UDM) to rule on ‘secret ballot’.

This came after the Highest court in the land, the Constitutional Court ruled it will consider whether a motion of no confidence against President Jacob Zuma should be taken by secret ballot.

The main opposition party DA has written to the Speaker of the National Assembly, Baleka Mbete, to request a postponement of the Motion of No Confidence in President Zuma, scheduled for 18 April 2017, until such time as the Constitutional Court decides on whether the vote will be done by secret ballot.

“It is important to allow the Constitutional Court the time to determine whether the motion can be conducted by secret ballot, as we believe that this would materially affect the outcome of the vote itself.” said DA

“As soon as a decision is taken, the motion must be debated before the Assembly as soon as possible.

The party has urged on all South Africans to march together to the Union Buildings tomorrow to call for Zuma to step down.
