Cyril Ramaphosa has been elected as president of SA following the first sitting of the National Assembly.

This comes after ANC deputy president David Mabuza decided to postpone his swearing-in, following the integrity commission’s report naming him as someone who had possibly brought the party into disrepute. Controversial ANC politicians Nomvula Mokonyane, Malusi Gigaba and Baleka Mbete were also absent from the swearing-in ceremony.
