Pretoria - The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) has indicated that it plans to appeal the judgment made by the North Gauteng High Court which agreed with President Cyril Ramaphosa to defer disciplinary action against the Minister of Public Enterprise Pravin Gordhan pending a judicial review.
This comes after the court ruled on Thursday that Ramaphosa has complied with the Public Protector's remedial action made against Gordhan.
The judgment allows Ramaphosa to await Gordhan's review of the Public Protector's report before deciding on what actions to take against him.
Speaking to the media after the judgment, EFF spokesperson Mbuyiseni Ndlozi said the judgment goes against the tide of the Constitutional Court.
"The remedial actions by the Public Protector are no mere remedial actions, they are binding until set aside by the court of law. A mere application for review doesn't set them aside," he said.
