There's been mixed reactions to the ConCourt ruling on the UDM’s application to allow for a secret ballot in Parly, and some Twitter users aren't convinced that National Assembly Parliamentary Speaker Baleka Mbete will do the right thing.
The Constitutional Court ruled that Mbete has the power to decide on a secret ballot in the proposed no-confidence vote in President Jacob Zuma.
Chief Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng says Mbete was wrong to say a secret ballot vote is not allowed in a motion of no confidence.
Mogoeng ruled that the secret ballot is permissible but that it is up to the Speaker to decide.
Mogoeng says it would be a violation of separation of powers for Concourt to order Speaker to conduct the secret vote.
President and Parliament have been ordered to pay costs of ConCourt bid brought by the UDM.
While some Twitter users are happy with the outcome, others say they don't trust Mbete's ability to perform her duties.
