According to her spokesman‚ Moloto Mothapo‚ at the lapse of the deadline‚ nine of the 13 parties represented in the National Assembly had submitted views.

The Constitutional Court ruled on 22 June that Mbete had the constitutional power to prescribe that voting in a motion of no confidence in the president could be conducted by secret ballot.

The parties are the ANC, DA, EFF, IFP, NFP, UDM, FF Plus, ACDP and Cope.

"Both the African National Congress and the Democratic Alliance have indicated they will abide by the Speaker's decision‚ while the rest of the 9 prefer a secret ballot‚" Mothapo said.

Mbete said she would take into account all viewpoints and make her decision thereafter.

The DA urges Mbete to apply her mind and to rationally decide on the matter of the secret ballot this week.

He reiterated opposition parties' call for Mbete to recuse herself from presiding over the debate on the motion.

"This undermines her duty to act as a liaison between Parliament as an institution and the other arms of state". The Speaker has a long history of showing bias in her slavish defence of President Zuma, and she is not suitable to preside over this important debate. "This means that she still fails to separate her role as head of the National Assembly", says Holomisa.
