Opposition parties look to unseat Zuma
A multi-party programming committee has agreed to 24 February.
JOHANNESBURG - The National Assembly will debate a motion of no-confidence in President Jacob Zuma on 24 February.
A multi-party programming committee has agreed to the February date at its meeting this morning.
Agang SA informed the house of its intention to bring the motion during Parliament's final term last year.
Last month, Agang SA filed papers with the Constitutional Court requesting a motion of no-confidence in Zuma be voted by way of a secret ballot.
The party first tabled the motion in the National Assembly in November last year.
It also wanted Speaker of Parliament Baleka Mbete to be declared unfit to hold office.
The start-up political party wants the motion debated soon after the 2015 State of the Nation Address.
