South Africa’s top jurists ruled Thursday parliament can hold a no-confidence vote against the president by secret ballot — but left the ultimate decision to the house’s speaker, who has been one of the president’s staunchest defenders.

"The Speaker of the National Assembly has the constitutional power to prescribe that voting in a no-confidence motion in the president be conducted by secret ballot‚" Chief Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng said in a unanimous judgment Thursday.
