The Constitutional Court has given accepted the demands of UDM and EFF by finally giving a date to hear the application for secret ballot for the vote of no confidence on Pres. Zuma.

ConCourt has declared May 15 as the date it will hear the application by opposition parties UDM and the EFF to compel a parliamentary vote of no confidence in President Jacob Zuma to be conducted by secret ballot.

The date was confirmed by UDM lawyer Eric Mabuza on Wednesday‚ following a tweet by UDM leader Bantu Holomisa.


The actual debate and vote was postponed by the speaker, Mbete to allow for the ConCourt application to be finalised.

The motion of no confidence is the fifth tabled against Zuma in three years.

A majority of 200 plus one would be needed for a motion of no confidence to succeed. The ANC occupies 249 of the 400 seats in the National Assembly‚ and the rest belong to opposition parties.

Julius Malema has urged the ANC MP’s to vote for the right course.
