EFF leader Julius Malema has vowed that Thursday's State of the Nation Address (Sona) will be replaced with a debate the motion of no confidence against President Jacob Zuma.
The EFF and five other political parties have written to the Speaker of Parliament asking for Sona to be postponed.
National Assembly Speaker Baleka Mbete rejected demands for a special sitting to debate a no-confidence motion before Sona.
Malema says the EFF is not willing to be addressed by someone who does not respect the Constitution, reports EWN's Clement Manyathela.
