South Africa court allows secret Zuma no-confidence vote

Written by  Jun 22, 2017

South Africa's highest court has ruled that a vote of no-confidence against President Jacob Zuma can be held in secret.The constitutional court said that the Speaker of parliament, Baleka Mbete, had the right to order such a move.

She has previously said that the rules of parliament did not allow for a secret ballot.Opposition parties believe that under a secret ballot, Members of Parliament from Zuma's ANC party would vote against him.

He has survived several previous votes of no-confidence.Zuma has been under constant pressure over everything from corruption allegations to a controversial cabinet reshuffle that led to the sacking of his widely respected finance minister.
