The IFP has noted, and welcomes, the resignation of National Assembly Speaker Mrs Nosiviwe Mapisa-Nqakula as Speaker.

This is a responsible decision by Mrs Mapisa-Nqakula as it allows her to focus on her legal matters without dragging Parliament along any further.

In the remaining weeks of its term of office the National Assembly still has work and business which must continue without compromise or interruption.

The IFP maintains that the law must apply without any fear or favour, and we implore on the former Speaker to subject herself to the legal processes until their legal and logical conclusion.

We thank her for her service, and wish her well in her future endeavors.
