Political parties were united in their condemnation of the Economic Freedom Fighter's disruptions at the State of the Nation Address on Thursday night.
There were calls for the party to be referred to the Powers and Privileges Committee for a disciplinary action.
Giving his take on the matter, programmes editor at ETV News, Lukhanyo Calata says there will most likely be sanctions.
There was a motion that was raised by one of the MPs but they said something along the lines of - Parliament needs to start hitting the EFF MPs where it hurts most, which is their pockets. I would imagine that that is definitely a suggestion that will be under consideration.— Lukhanyo Calata, Programmes editor - ETV News
In terms of the need to amend Parliamentary rules to avoid a repeat of the incident, Calata says while the rules are designed to keep everyone in line, they are also designed to protect the integrity of the house.
There was a clear disrespect and disregard for the speaker and for the rules she was trying to impose.— Lukhanyo Calata, Programmes editor - ETV News
