DA Calls For Debate On Matter Of Urgent Public Importance

The Democratic Alliance in the Gauteng Provincial Legislature has written to Speaker, Lenteng Mekgwe, calling for a debate on a matter of urgent public importance in terms of Rule 128 of the House.

Given Gauteng Premier, David Makhura and ANC Gauteng Chairperson, Paul Mashatile’s decision to break ranks with the ANC and publically condemn President Jacob Zuma after the Constitutional Court ruled against him, it is the DA’s view that residents of the province are entitled to know whether the provincial government’s allegiances lie with the president who violated his oath of office, or with the people.

Date: Tuesday, 26 April 2016
Time: 10:00 am
Venue: Gauteng Provincial Legislature, Johannesburg

There will be opportunities for interviews and photographs. Members of the media are welcome to attend.
