President Cyril Ramaphosa has scoffed at a motion of no confidence in him set to be debated in Parliament later on Wednesday afternoon.
However, the ATM will not participate in the motion after the National Assembly Speaker ruled that it will not be a secret ballot.
Earlier, the Western Cape High Court dismissed ATM urgent application to have a secret ballot.
Speaking to the SABC on the side-lines of the National Union of Mineworkers national congress in Boksburg east of Johannesburg, Ramaphosa said he is not concerned by the motion.

On Monday, the court struck off the roll an urgent application by the ATM on the matter.
National Assembly Speaker, Nosiviwe Mapisa-Nqakula, insists there must be an open vote.
