EFF leader Julius Malema wants a motion of no confidence in President Cyril Ramaphosa in addition to an impeachment vote. MPs were expected to vote on Tuesday on whether Ramaphosa should face an impeachment process following the release of the Section 89 Independent Panel report.
The Constitution allows for the National Assembly to be dissolved if the majority of MPs vote in support. The ANC has a majority in Parliament, and for any such motion to succeed will need the entire opposition bloc and ANC MPs to support it.
And the ANC NEC has already taken a stand to support President Ramaphosa, also calling for all its MP’s to support Ramaphosa in Parliament.
