The captain, the new head of the African National Congress (ANC), Pewy Maywood, said that Vice-President David Mabusa has postponed only his oath as a Member, saying he still intends to go to Parliament.
ANK President Kirill Ramaphos issued a statement Wednesday and said that Mabusa had made the request in the light of a report by the party's integrity committee, which allegedly led the party to a bad reputation.
In the president's statement, it seems that the decision was taken only by Mabusa.
"He has decided to follow the dictum of his conscience and postpone his wailing as a member of the National Assembly from respect for the institutions and processes of the ANC," the statement said.
Maywood said he was not aware of the intention of Mabusa to withdraw entirely from the list of MPs representing the party in the National Assembly.
"I have no intention of receiving him to resign. They told me that he was postponing.
But Maywood said he was not panicked because ANC had capable people on the list.
"There is no solution he can make. If he resigns, I do not panic. I know we have capable leaders. "
Meanwhile, Taban McVella will take over the former Speaker of the National Assembly, Baleka Mbte, in the hall.
McVvety admitted that Bossasa has paid for security at home and is now going to Parliament. Makwetla will replace Mbete on ANC's parliamentary benches.
Mette pointed out Tuesday that he would not take his place in parliament. This happened a few hours before the first parliamentary session.
On Wednesday, 400 lawmakers will be sworn in. A chairman and a deputy chairman will also be elected. The president will also be elected on Wednesday afternoon.
