Parliamentary matters are likely to dominate politics in the week ahead, with chief justice Mogoeng Mogoeng administering the swearing-in of MPs in the National Assembly, representatives of the National Council of Provinces (NCOP) and, ultimately, the president-elect of SA. Ahead of that, the ANC will hold a special meeting of its national executive committee in Cape Town on Monday, where it is expected to finalise the party’s plans before its members are sworn into the country’s national and provincial legislatures. It is also yet to announce who will be its premier-elect in the North West. The ANC caucus in parliament is expected to meet on Tuesday.
