No-Confidence Motion in Zuma A Moral Test

Even if the Democratic Alliance’s motion of no confidence in President Jacob Zuma fails‚ the “ensuing debate will ensure a more accountable and open system of governance,” writes Dube.

Even if the Democratic Alliance’s motion of no confidence in President Jacob Zuma fails‚ the “ensuing debate will ensure a more accountable and open system of governance,” according to Phephelaphi Dube, legal officer for the Centre for Constitutional Rights.

Dube says the motion will raise the obvious question as to whether members of Parliament are beholden to their party bosses rather than to the Constitution.

She is of the view that, “It is not the first time that the opposition party has attempted to have a no confidence resolution passed,” adding that, “No such attempt in South Africa’s constitutional democracy has ever succeeded‚ given that for the resolution to pass‚ the motion must be supported by a simple majority of the members of the National Assembly.”
