The Economic Freedom Fighters (EDF) has announced that it will join the UDM application at the Constitutional Court for parliament to provide a secrete ballot on the vote of the motion of no confidence in President Jacob Zuma.
National spokesperson, Mbuyiseni Quinton Ndlozi, said: “This is following Zuma’s own opposing papers in which he essentially, in a morally degenerate move, opposes the granting of a secret ballot that will be concerned with him.
“Zuma has opened a way for the EFF because we reject and despise the self-centred and selfish way in which he wants to dictate how MPs should express their confidence or none-thereof in him.
“When he launched opposing papers of a motion that will be about him he declared war against the very freedom we believe the secret ballot seeks to protect.
“How lowly must a leader in a democratic society be that like Zuma, he wants to hold on to power at all costs.
“Zuma, who represents a different organ of the state, the executive, should have allowed parliament to resolve its internal processes with the guidance of the courts about how to handle a motion of no confidence in him as a president.”
