Deputy president David Mabuza has delayed his swearing-in as Member of Parliament on Wednesday.
Mabuza said that he wants to first deal with the report that found him to have brought the ANC into disrepute.
EWN reporter Gaye Davis says Mabuza is among 22 other candidates whom the ANC’s integrity committee has flagged as problematic.
President Cyril Ramaphosa has commended Mabuza for making the decision and for putting the party's interest first.

Nomvula Mokonyane will also not be sworn in as an MP citing family responsibility following the death of her husband.
However, Davis says the ANC in a statement has confirmed that Mokonyane had asked the organisation to reconsider her redeployment.
The ANC's national executive committee had designated Mokonyane as the chair of chairs the National Assembly.
She made it clear that the reasons for this is because she is in mourning and she has family responsibility. She doesn't feel she can apply herself with the necessary diligence and commitment to the job.— Gaye Davis, Reporter - EWN
There is also speculation that Mokonyane declined the position because of allegations that she has received money from Bosasa.
Baleka Mbete and Malusi Gigaba have also declined to be sworn in as MPs.
