South Africa opposition EFF says will boycott election of new president

South Africa opposition EFF says will boycott election of new president

This comes despite the resignation of Jacob Zuma as president of South Africa on Wednesday night.

"Zuma himself had said in several occasions that he would respect the ANC decision if they chose to recall him as he was a disciplined cadre of the ANC", Ntenteni said.

The ANC had wanted to remove Zuma with its own motion but with the EFF already having tabled its motion, it was impossible for the ANC to do the same until the EFF motion had been disposed of. And there was no possibility the EFF motion of no confidence was going to be withdrawn.

Acting President Cyril Ramaphosa is due to be confirmed as Jacob Zuma's permanent successor in a parliamentary vote later on Thursday. "That is a good sign of demonstrating that across party lines we should have an opportunity of working together", Ramaphosa said.

United Democratic Movement leader Bantu Holomisa credited ordinary South Africans for Ramaphosa's election and joked that the ANC had finally managed to give Zuma a "shibobo". We will continue to be ever vigilant and hold government to account‚ and ensure we never again allow the rot to set it until it becomes too late.

GM to close plant in South Korea in restructuring
GM owns 77 percent of the operations while GM's main Chinese partner, SAIC Motor Corp ., controls 6 percent. GM Korea's combined sales plunged 12 percent on-year to 524,547 vehicles from 597,165 for the whole of 2017.

"We don't have a Jacob Zuma problem. I pray that you have the courage to do the right thing even if it is not popular...even if the comrade say let us go left but you know the right is the way to go". We can not continue to be in a state of limbo, we need to bring certainty that, yes we are now on course, and government and parliament are working. "So it must be understood in that way", Malema said.

The Thabo Mbeki Foundation is named after the former state president who was himself recalled by the ANC in 2008 to pave the way for Zuma's eventual ascension to the South African presidency.

The National Assembly is expected to elect Ramaphosa as the new president on Friday morning so that he can deliver his first state of the nation address (Sona) in the evening.

But he had no kind of words for DA leader Mmusi Maimane who promised Ramaphosa that if he acts in the best interest of the country, the DA will cooperate with him.
