The ANC and EFF voted for the motion.

The motion succeeded with 111 votes. The DA and smaller parties didn’t vote.

The DA, throughout the process, called the process illegal.

The acting EFF Speaker, Obukeng Ramabodu, disputed it, saying the council is legal. The DA has indicated they are taking the matter to court.
