DA calls for Parliament to be dissolved, early election

DA calls for Parliament to be dissolved, early election

Maimane was speaking at a press briefing in Parliament today, after yesterday's eighth motion of no confidence vote saw President Jacob Zuma remain at the helm, but by a smaller margin.

Mbete made a surprise decision Monday to hold the ballot in secret after a campaign by the opposition who hope to encourage ANC members to vote against their leader without fear of intimidation. The outcome of the vote was 177 in favour of the motion and 198 against, with nine abstentions.

The firing of Gordhan led both Standard & Poor's and Fitch to lower South Africa's credit rating to below investment grade, or "junk", status in April, with Moody's downgrading its rating in June but keeping it at investment grade, albeit with a negative outlook. "It is their own imagination", an exuberant Zuma told a cheering crowd outside parliament in Cape Town after the result was announced.

Mr Zuma's political career has been dogged by corruption allegations and personal scandals. He has survived several motions of no confidence before, although the previous ones were by an open vote, and has dealt with accusations of corruption.

Mr. Zuma has already survived seven no-confidence votes.

The result of Tuesday's voting once again showed the unity of the ANC and the loyalty of ANC MPs to the organisation, an ANC MP said on condition of anonymity.

Chicago Mayor to Sue Trump Administration over Sanctuary Cities
Chicago had 50 more homicides than NY and Los Angeles combined through mid-June, even though it is far less populous than both. Past year the city received $2.3 million in federal funding to fight its violent gun and homicide epidemic .


Across the country, there were huge marches and protests as the elected leaders debated the issue of Zuma's removal. Some members of the ANC called the motion a regime change orchestrated by opposition parties to oust the ANC government.

"They believe they could use technicalities in parliament to take over the majority from the ANC".

Zuma's critics see him as having delegitimized the ANC, the liberation movement that has governed South Africa since the election of Nelson Mandela as the country's first democratic president put a definitive end to apartheid in 1994.

"It went to the wire because there are only 11 votes that divide us", Holomisa said. He also has been accused of mismanaging the economy.

"The ANC is supported by the overwhelming majority", he said, before breaking boisterously into song, cracking jokes and telling his supporters that the opposition had been thwarted in an attempted power grab.

The DA leader said the party would continue to pursue legal action against Zuma and other members of the executive involved in state capture.
