Parliament Will Not Collapse if MKP Members Don’t Show Up

The MK Party’s absence will not prohibit Parliament from conducting work during its first two weeks of existence.

According to TimesLIVE, South Africa’s constitution requires a third of parliament to vote on amendment bills. Except for the MK Party, all parties have a total of 342 parliament members. The ANC holds 159 seats, the DA has 87, and the EFF has 39.

South Africa’s new government will elect a new president and cabinet after the African National Congress failed to secure a majority in the 2024 general elections. The ANC received 40% of the vote, and the DA received more than 20%. The MKP received 14% of the vote, while the FF received little under 10%.

Facebook users criticized Jacob Zuma and his party’s activities.

Kanye McKay said:

“I wish he could form a government in KZN as soon as possible so he can take all of KZN’s budget to upgrade his palace in Nkandla.”

CIC Malhotrah Return said:

“But we all know Parliament’s sitting needs at least 350 members upwards. Less than that, the seating is useless.”

Bongani Radebe responded:

“400 seats are already allocated to parties. Zuma’s stokvel is just full of drama queens.”

Ronza Ronald said:

“The problem with Zuma is that he doesn’t understand the law. The only thing he understands is to break the law.”

Ngcebo Ngema said:

“Don’t forget that we have MK members with the ANC NEC right now, so there’s a huge division.”
