‘Quest for relevance and attention’: ANC slams motion of no confidence

‘Quest for relevance and attention’: ANC slams motion of no confidence

The party congratulated its Parliamentary Caucus for defeating the DA motion and looked forward to guidance the National Assembly Programming Committee will provide when the ATM matter is discussed.

Spokesperson, Pule Mabe said the defeat of both these motions will show that there is no concrete evidence to suggest any basis for their illusions and stands as an affirmation of the ANC’s unwavering confidence in President Cyril Matamela Ramaphosa.

“Both motions are nothing else but a quest for relevance and attention. This is the pattern we have continued to observe since President Ramaphosa was democratically elected into office on the 8th May 2019

“For the ATM, a party that received less than one percent of electoral support in the May 2019 national elections, yet they believe they can alter the will of the majority of the South African people is wishful thinking. This is just a political stunt aimed at usurping power through the backdoor.”

Mabe also said the ANC went into the proceedings fully confident that these motions would be stillborn.

“The Members of Parliament who voted showed their commitment to their organisation,” he said.


The defeat came as no surprise as the ANC had majority and other opposition also voted against the motion. Surprisingly, the EFF voted with the DA.

Those in favour – 131 (DA, EFF, FF+, ACDP, UDM, ATM).

Those against – 231 (ANC, IFP, GOOD, NFP, AIC, Al Jama-aha)

Abstain – 1 (COPE)
