An official in the South African parliament on Thursday said The President of South Africa Cyril Ramaphosa faces a no-confidence motion next week.
A small opposition party African Transformation Movement(ATM) which is made up of 400 members and occupied just seats in the National Assembly, in February filed a request for a vote of no-confidence debate with the speaker against President Ramaphosa.
This will be his first since entering office nearly three years ago. Ramaphosa became president in February 2018 after Zuma was forced to step down amid growing corruption scandals.
Vuyolwethu Zungula, who is the leader of the party said the reason why they requested the debate is that many people believed South Africa “has been on a slippery slope ever since President Ramaphosa occupied the highest office in the land.” because things are not going the way it should.”
The following year he won a popular mandate following general elections.
A no-confidence vote is realized when about 201 is passed from a simple majority but Ramaphosa’s African National Congress party (ANC) holds 230 seats, and the motion stands little chance of success.
“The speaker has approved that request, and our recommendation is that it be dealt with next Thursday,” Masibulele Xaso, secretary to the National Assembly, told the parliament’s programming committee.
