ANC statement on the court ruling

22 November 2012

The African National Congress welcome the court ruling on the issue of the passing a motion of no confidence against President Zuma.

This judgement vindicates our argument that the courts can`t be used to undermine the independence of Parliament as one of the organs of state.

Any prescription of its work by any of the two arms of state (government or judiciary) would undermine a fundamental principle that underpins the Constitutional provisions of separation of powers. It would have reduced the independence and the Constitutionally prescribed powers of Parliament in exercising its business.
