Date set for Zuma no confidence vote
Speaker Baleka Mbete said on Friday that she was still considering the option of a secret ballot vote.
Opposition political parties had first brought the motion earlier this year, but asked Mebte to postpone the vote pending the Constitutional Court’s judgment on whether Mbete has the powers to call for a secret vote in a motion of no confidence.
That judgement was handed down last week, where the court said Mbete in fact had the power to call for such a vote. This was after Mbete said she does not.
The court said Mbete should make the decision in a rational manner and consider all the options before her.
Opposition parties have already threatened that they would take her decision on review if she did not make a decision on secret ballot vote in a rational manner.
