Holomisa: ANC mistaken, it did not win secret ballot ruling

UDM leader Bantu Holomisa says the party has succeeded in helping Parliamentary Speaker Baleka Mbete to affirm her Constitutional powers.

Now Baleka Mbete is clear that she has got her powers to conduct the secret ballot.

The UDM approached the court in May, in an application to allow for a secret ballot in a motion of no confidence against President Jacob Zuma.

On Thursday, the ConCourt ruled that Mbete has the power to decide on a secret ballot, contrary to her initial claims.

Holomisa says that Mbete's arrogance and blind loyalty to the ANC and Zuma has put them in this mess.

He believes opposition parties have come out victorious, despite a claim by the ANC that suggests otherwise.

We have won a principle here and we are celebrating that.

Bantu Holomisa, UDM leader
