[FIRST ON EWN] GORDHAN: I’LL VOTE ACCORDING TO MY CONSCIENCE

JOHANNESBURG – Former Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan says that the country should wait and see what happens next week, suggesting that it appears as if opposition parties are intent on taking the Speaker of Parliament’s decision on review if it doesn’t suit them.

During an exclusive interview with Eyewitness News, Gordhan said he would be in Parliament next week to vote because it’s what he is paid to do.

Some reports suggest that Gordhan is one of the Members of Parliament who is likely to vote against Zuma after he was recalled as a minister earlier this year.

Gordhan has again emphasized that he will vote according to his conscience next week during the motion of no confidence against President Jacob Zuma.

However, he also stressed that we should wait and see what happens.

“In terms of the current dynamics, it would appear that the opposition is intent upon taking the decision by the Speaker that might not suit them on review, so let’s wait and see what’s happens and make our choices.”

National Assembly Speaker Baleka Mbete is yet to announce whether the vote will take place by secret or open ballot.
