PRESS STATEMENT: Dissolving Parliament and Early Elections

August 11, 2017


DISSOLVING PARLIAMENT AND EARLY ELECTIONS


The Jesuit Institute South Africa urges opposition parties to rethink and to desist from attempting a motion to dissolve Parliament and force early elections in reaction to the outcome of the no-confidence vote in President Jacob Zuma.

His latest comments were made last weekend when he spoke at St. John's Apostolic Faith Mission Church in Evaton. The South African Council of Churches (SACC) had urged members of parliament to vote to remove Zuma in last week's no-confidence vote.
