JOHANNESBURG, March 31 The leader of South
Africa's opposition Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) said on
Friday the ultra-left party wanted a no confidence vote in
parliament against President Jacob Zuma after he roiled markets
by sacking Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan.
Zuma's ruling African National Congress has almost two
thirds of the seats in parliament and similar motions have
failed in the past. But EFF leader Julius Malema told a
televised news conference that it was not a waste of time to try
because the country was in crisis.
