JOHANNESBURG - UDM leader Bantu Holomisa has filed papers in the Constitutional Court, seeking to ensure a secret ballot during Parliament’s vote of no confidence.
Speaker of Parliament Baleka Mbete had previously turned down the UDM's request.
She says there's no provision for a secret ballot in Parliament's rules or the Constitution.
Holomisa, however, disagrees.
