 SOUTH AFRICAN OPPOSITION PARTIES CALL FOR EARLY ELECTIONS AS ATTEMPTS TO OUST PRESIDENT JACOB ZUMA DEEPENS

 

South African opposition parties have called for early elections as the ruling ANC wrestled with a leadership battle between President JACOB ZUMA and his deputy, CYRIL RAMAPHOSA.

 

They have given National Assembly speaker BALEKA MBETE until Tuesday morning to respond to them on a request for the EFF’s motion of no confidence to be brought forward as urgent.

 

DA leader, MMUSI MAIMANE told reporters that Zuma’s constitutional violation was extended in that Parliament failed to hold him to account.

 

This comes as ANC president CYRIL RAMAPHOSA engages in talks with ZUMA about a “transition” that would see the former resign and make way for the latter to take over as leader of party and the government.
