SPEAKER of the North West Su­san Dan­tjie has post­poned a mo­tion of no con­fi­dence de­bate against the province’s pre­mier, Supra Mahumapelo.

The post­pone­ment was to al­low for the un­fold­ing of court pro­cesses, which the EFF — the party that tabled the mo­tion — had lodged.

On Mon­day the EFF ap­proached the court on an ur­gent ba­sis for an in­ter­dict to com­pel the speaker of the North West leg­is­la­ture to hold the no con­fi­dence vote by se­cret bal­lot.

Dan­tjie in­di­cated in a memo to mem­bers of the leg­is­la­ture, which News24 has seen, that she was post­pon­ing the vote for the “fi­nal­i­sa­tion of their in­tended le­gal pro­ceed­ings”.
