Outa not concerned by decision on open, secret ballot
Last week the ConCourt ruled that Speaker Baleka Mbete was mistaken to think she doesn't have the power to allow a secret ballot in Parliament.
CAPE TOWN – The Organisation Undoing Tax Abuse (Outa) says while it prefers a secret ballot in a motion of no confidence in President Jacob Zuma, it is not particularly concerned either way.
OUTA delivered a 'compelling' document detailing the extent of South Africa's alleged State Capture to Parliament on Wednesday.
It believes the seven chapters contain enough evidence to remove Zuma from his position.
Last week the Constitutional Court ruled that Speaker Baleka Mbete was mistaken to think she doesn't have the power to allow a secret ballot in Parliament.
Outa's Wayne Duvenage says, “There is an interesting debate about what are the pros and cons of an open or a closed ballot – either way believe the evidence we have given compels the members of parliament to move in the right direction. We favour a secret ballot, but if its no secret ballot we don’t believe its the end.”
