JOHANNESBURG, April 11 South Africa's top court
said on Tuesday it had granted the United Democratic Movement
the right to present its application to impose a secret ballot
vote on a motion of no confidence against President Jacob Zuma,
SABC television reported.
The rand extended its gains to 1 percent against the dollar
in response to the news. Opposition parties have said that the
vote on April 18 could have a chance of success if it is held by
secret ballot, but the ruling ANC party, which has a majority in
parliament, has said it will vote against the motion.
