JOHANNESBURG - The Western Cape High Court has struck off the roll the Economic Freedom Fighters' (EFF) urgent application to stop the National Assembly speaker, Baleka Mbete, from physically removing its members from the chamber during tomorrow's question and answer session with the president.

The application also sought to postpone Jacob Zuma's appearance in the house, until the Speaker has given the court an assurance that there will be no physical violence of any sort against members of the opposition, for anything said in the National Assembly.
