National assembly speaker Thandi Modise is opposi g another attempt to force her to allow a vote of no confidence motion against the president.
This is to take place by secret ballot. The African transformation movement has applied to the Western cape division of the high Court to be allowed to argue its case in the Supreme Court of appeal.

The ANC's political infighting is being laid bare, just as the African Transformation movement is forging ahead with attempts to have MP's vote secretly for a vote of no confidence in President Cyril Ramaphosa.
